While many don’t really give it much thought, you actually CAN eat healthy at Disney World – sometimes you just need to implement a few tricks like ordering an entree without the sides, or snacking on various salads. There are all kinds of variations of salads alone that I could do a list on. While I totally recommend enjoying a variety of foods as you make your way through the parks, it’s good to look for healthy snack options occasionally, too. You can easily find them at the fruit stands and counter service locations. Here are five Healthy Disney World snacks for under $7.00.
Sweet Thai Chili Shrimp $6.99
This is the priciest snack on the list, but you’ll understand why. This cute Little Mermaid inspired dish has a gorgeous presentation and it’s perfect for shrimp lovers (like my hubby). It’s found at Prince Eric’s Village Market, where you can find other healthy snack items as well.
Chicken Corn Chowder $4.69
Sunshine Seasons in Epcot is one of the best counter service locations you can go to for healthy snacks, as well as variety! They have tons of grab and go options, and most of them are pretty good for you. If you prefer to get something hot, try the Chicken Corn Chowder. It’s under $5 and is fantastic. There’s also a black bean soup you can try if you don’t eat meat.
Carrot and Celery Sticks with Hummus $4.49
One of the most prevalent and easy to find healthy snacks in Disney World is this little pack of veggies and hummus. You can find them in fruit stands all over the parks and resorts, including Sunshine Seasons. These cost only $4.49 and are among the healthiest treats you can eat while on vacation at Disney World. They’re also a big hit with kiddos who just need something to munch on!
Good Health Veggie Chips $2.99
Sunshine Seasons is so full of healthy choices, I couldn’t help but include one more option. While the Carrot and Celery pack is available all over Disney World, I’ve only seen these chips at Sunshine seasons. This is a great substitute snack option if you are a really heavy chip eater. Fruits and veggies are great if you typically like to eat fruits and veggies, but if you want something that feels a little more indulgent while on vacation, these veggie chips are kind of like the best of both worlds.
Whole Fruit $2.29
Last, but not least, we come to fruit. It’s the lowest cost healthy snack option and you can find it almost anywhere these days. You can find easily accessible fruit stands with grapes, apples, clementines, pineapple… fruit is a healthy and sweet treat that is very convenient when you’re eating healthy on-the-go in the parks. Some fruit markets are less beneficial than others, though – Anaheim Produce at Hollywood Studios only offers beverages and pretzels on the menu, but Harambe Fruit Market is a true fruit stand with a variety of options in whole fruit and fruit servings. This fruit stand is located in the African section of Animal Kingdom Park. There are fruit stands in Magic Kingdom at Liberty Square, Epcot at (you guessed it) The Land Pavilion, and of course in the resorts as well.
