    Does this refer to people who are officially on a diet, just to watch their weight or do they mean something more specific than that?
    Don't worry about it. Just put your food in your backpack with a sweatshirt or something on top of it.

    From my experience, they don't say anything for snacks. I'm sure if you tried to bring in full meals they might say something, but they saw my bag of trailmix and a few Granola Bars in my bag and said nothing.

I used to absolutely love the Mardi Gras salad at the Blue Bayou, but I don't think it is available anymore. At D.C.A., I like the corn chowder at the Pacific Wharf Cafe. And, Downtown Disney has some reasonably healthy options, as well. But, unfortunately, Disneyland doesn't make finding nutritious and wholesome food very easy to find, especially for health-conscious vegetarians like myself.
    Where are you finding vegetarian gumbo and/or jambalaya in NOS?

    Obviously I think the key here is to be discreet about it. If you do that you shouldn't have too many problems. Those packages of snap peas and small carrots they sell now in the produce section of the supermarket can also come in handy to ward off hunger pangs.

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    Since there aren't many healthy choices at the park I usually pack a few snacks, and since I'm diabetic ... if I'm told about it at security I just let them know this and they wave me through.

    Usually I like to pack two bottles of water, some nuts or shredded wheat, and one or two cans of frozen Glucerna shakes (LOVE the chocolate one).

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    I always bring my own food to DL since not many places are vegetarian friendly, and I've never had anyone say anything to me.

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    I've been on weight watchers... I always order one of the salads from Pizza Port and go really easy on the dressing. The salads are huge and they come with good plain (as in not fried) chicken pieces along with some good vegetables... even if you do go with the regular amount of cheese and dressing its still less in points than say a whole plate of fried chicken!
    Try getting a pineapple spear instead of a pineapple whip if you are trying to be real careful. If not just use your weekly allowance points when you go to Disneyland!!
    Hope that helps!!

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    Yes, you can bring in some snacks, but for meals, I recomend:

    Pasta with Marinara sauce at either Pizza Port or Plaza Inn (either get the child's meal or split a full plate)

    Vegetable and/or fruit packs at stands (you can also get all kinds of fruit like apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, and pineapple at these stands)

    Bengal Barbeque for a vegetable or chicken skewer(s)

    Side salad with dressing on the side from most of the restaurants.

    Most of the hamburger places serve your hamburger without anything on them (just add ketchup and/or mustard to keep them low in fat). DCA's Test Pilot's Grill has a condiment bar for hamburgers which will give you more options of what to put on your burger too.

    Zocolo (sp?) has a good roasted chicken plate (just don't eat all of the rice and beans)

    Kid's meals come with the option of getting carrots with them instead of fries.

    Anyway, there's a few suggestions to try and keep from going too crazy...hope this helps

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    This is kind of a tough one, I'm thinking back to my point counting days..... salad no dressing, salad light dressing, salad, salad, salad! I remember getting a hamburger no cheese at the hungry bear, and taking off the top bun, that's not too many points. Really, I would take in my own food. Or, if you are going with a group, and every wants a sit down meal, just eat 1/3 of whatever you want, and you shouldn't be toooo far over for the day. As mentioned before, just make sure you are super duper strict with yourself before and after you go. You'll be fine!

    Where is a good place to eat lunch and/or dinner that offers good, calorie and fat conscious foods? If so, what specific foods can I choose from?

    Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

    Nope. Just put them in your purse. No one has ever said anything to me. I bring in my own water yet they sell water in the park but they say nothing. Go for it

    Re: Diet Food at the Park

    kids meals a good option and I second the Pizza Port salads.

    Some places have veggie burgers - DO NOT eat the one at Hungry Bear. I had a turkey burger at Storytellers (but you might want to hold the fries!).

    I think it's harder to not give into the bad ('cuz there's SO MUCH yummy bad around there) than to eat the good.

    Oh and the turkey legs shouldn't be bad, if you share.

    I knew you'd feel the same things...
