My Thoughts on Alcohol Added to Magic Kingdom Table Service Meals

This story broke last week and quickly raced through the Walt Disney World fan community with nearly universal acceptance.  I spent some time, over the weekend, and I am about to throw some cold water on that acceptance.  I don’t think this is a good idea for the Walt Disney World resort.  I think it is a case of short-term profit taking over the long-established traditions of the Magic Kingdom.  Below I will lay out my case for why I think this is a bad idea.

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Orange Loop. Today we are sharing our reviews of the deluxe villa resorts at Walt Disney World.

BLT Top of the World #2

Welcome to Bay Lake Tower: the only Deluxe Villa Resort where you can walk from the resort to the Magic Kingdom.  This fact is the top-selling point for this resort.  My family enjoys our Disney Vacation Club stays at Bay Lake Tower.  We can leave the resort at 30 minutes before rope drop at Magic Kingdom and arrive in plenty of time for the opening show.

Dieting (or at least not gaining weight) at Disney

In December 2015, I went on the first major diet in my life.  My weight was finally reaching the point where it was starting to impact my daily life so both my wife and I decided to do something about it.  The diet consists of a lot of portion control and a slight increase in exercise.  Since December, I have lost 60 pounds and six inches off my waist.  This post is not to discuss the pros and cons of dieting and my success while on this diet.  It’s to discuss how to diet and go to Disney.  I have a work trip scheduled for September and a family vacation to Disney scheduled December.  These will be my first trips to Disney while on this diet.  So, what are some ways that you can diet (or at least not gain weight) while on a Disney vacation?
