Quick tip of the day
From Melissa C.:
“I recently listened to a few of your podcasts where trip reporters mentioned that they had way too much food to eat on the dining plan, although they still found it a great value for the character meals especially.
I’ve heard several people mention that they often bypass the dessert course because they don’t want to feel stuffed walking around the park.
This is my tip: instead of bypassing dessert, ask your server for a cup of fruit to go.
Early on in our last trip, a server offered this as an option to my 5 year old and we ended up doing it for at least one of us at every meal.
It especially works well if you have a stroller with a cooler bag, to keep the fruit from going bad too quickly.
This actually worked really well for us, as a family with a toddler who wasn’t getting additional snack credits.
But regardless of your family dynamics, a cup of fruit to go is often a wonderful substitute for a table service dessert in the parks.”
