There are a ton of amazing Walt Disney World Resorts to choose from, so many that Disney had to divide them into categories, with Value Resorts being the cheapest with the smallest rooms and fewest ameneties, and the Moderate Resorts have larger rooms and more on site ameneties, and then there’s the Deluxe Resorts, which are the largest, fanciest Resorts with – you guessed it – the largest price tag too. So why would you pick a Deluxe Resort over WDW’s cheaper Resorts?
Well, here are some reasons:
More Space: The rooms at WDW Deluxe Resorts are biggest and most luxurious on WDW property – some of them are so beautiful that you may never want to leave (which would be ok, because room service and concierge service is also available at several of these resorts). All standard Deluxe rooms come with two queen or 1 king size bed, and ample sink and bathroom space for you and your family to spread out. Plus, there are plenty of different room choices as many Resorts offer Garden or Water views with balconies, and some also have suites available. If you’re traveling with your family, the larger rooms and suite options that the Deluxe Resorts offer would be perfect for you.
As science and medicine progress, it is being found that many more people than were previously thought have food allergies or sensitivities. There are also many food issues among folks with chronic diseases. This issue runs the gamut from the very young to the elderly. Disney takes these food issues very seriously and offers solutions at the large majority of their restaurants so their guests will not be subjected to the problems that can happen as a result of these allergies/sensitivities.
Let’s take a look at what some of the major food allergies are:
- gluten or wheat
- lactose or dairy
- peanuts and tree nuts
The best way to avoid problems with these types of allergies/issues is to note them when you make your table service reservations or if you prefer, discuss them with the Chef or Restaurant Manager upon your arrival. These things can generally be handled quite easily.
The “Mickey Check” will soon become a recognized symbol on quick service menus throughout Disney World and Disneyland.
This system will help you and your family quickly determine which meals are healthier options when scanning the menus and placing your orders.
So what do YOU think, is this helpful? Are you glad Disney is doing this?

Mickey Check is part of the Disney Healthy Living program and its goal to make sure that foods meet or exceed nutritional guidelines that are set out by Disney and will be used at both the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort starting today.
The Mickey Check icon will be marked on the menu to all items that meet the standards of the Disney Healthy Living program.
The Mickey Turkey Meatloaf, a Carved Turkey Sandwich, Seared Mahi Mahi and Whole-Grain Macaroni are the first winners of the Mickey Check from the menu at “Be Our Guest”. Other quick service restaurants will be immediately joining the program and table service restaurants joining the program starting in January 2013.

While on the Disney Quick Service Dining Plan, you are entitled to two meals and one snack per person, per day of your stay. At first glance, we often wonder if we will have enough. Then, as we are on our last days at the parks, we realize that we have been having so much magical fun that we do have some credits to use before going home! Keep in mind that some of these foods travel better by car than by air. But, if you’re creative and thoughtful, you’ll be going home with some goodies to keep the magic going after you’ve left the parks. Also, with the Disney Dining Plan offering one table service, one quick service, and one snack per person per day, that can seem like a daunting amount of food. What if you fill up on table service for a meal, and the thought of eating a quick service meal seems unappetizing. Before you know it, you’ll be left with several quick service dining credits at the end of your trip.
Here are some tips we like to do with our left over credits:
- On one of your last park days, consider ordering a pizza from your QSD location at your resort. When you do so, you get a non alcoholic beverage, a full size pizza, and two desserts. This is costs you TWO ADULT meal credits. It can easily feed our family of five, and it helps us use our credits toward the end of our stay.
