What I bring (and don't bring) to my Disney vacations
When you're on Weight Watchers and are at Disney World, bringing your own snacks and meals can save you a lot of time, money, and Smart Points.
A common Disney misconception is that you can't bring any outside food or drinks. You can't bring a cooler but you can bring your own food in your backpack or purse.
Worth noting there is a McDonald’s on property if bringing your own food is out of the question. There is also a 24/7 grocery store, Gooding's, located down the road from Disney Springs just outside of Disney property.
And also a quick disclaimer that I'm not being paid by any of these companies to say I eat or drink their stuff when I go to Disney; this is literally what I bring nealy every single time I go.
Foods I bring with me:
Thomas bagel thin (3 SP) with 2 tbsp of mixed up PB2 (1 SP) for lunch.
One WW crunchy snack for lunch; I bring two because I have the other for a snack later! 2 SP each.
One Emerald 100 calorie pack of cashews (3SP) in case I'm starving, but I usually don't end up eating it.
Powerade Zero, no SP, is great to hydrate on a hot day. If you don't want powdered peanut butter, another recommendation are those tuna packs that you can now buy at the grocery store!
I also bring measuring cups with me to the parks! It helps!
What I don't bring:
Dole Whip is my dessert. At 5 SP per half cup, can't go wrong!
Fruit. There are SO many places to buy fruit, so no sense in lugging some around in your backpack in the heat.
You don't have to eat exactly what I eat, and for my longer trips/if I don't eat out of the parks I will take advantage of some of my Park Food Finds other than Dole Whip, but this is just an example of a typical Disney day for you to maybe use as a baseline or for inspiration.
