I am so used to cooking and healthy snack-packing for the family that the idea of eating out all day, every day at Disney seems crazy. I know many say you can do it economically but with a mini-fridge and microwave in our room, I can bring a few items to supply snacks and breakfast most days. And in case you are wondering, we are packing these items in checked baggage. We have a non-stop 3 hour flight and all perishable will be packed in freezer bags with frozen items to stay cold.Our plan is to pack powdered milk and a quart container and once reconstituted, we store it in the fridge for cereal.Here is what I am planning to pack but will let you know what I did bring and what I will never bring again.
Organic bite-sized carrots
Hummus snack packs
Frozen cheese sticks & a block of reduced fat cheddar
Frozen Muffins (our current favorite is Kiwi-Strawberry)
Our favorite snack bars: Z-bars, larabar, Kashi
Packets of oatmeal
Crackers packed in solid container
Roasted Whole Almonds
Organic Vanilla Milk in travel sizes from Horizon Organics
Packets of Microwavable Popcorn
Packets of Tuna
salt, pepper, mayonnaise and sugar packets
Plastic utensils and reusable cups
Mini-dish detergent packed in a sealed bag
With some of the items above can make PopcornTrail Mix to bring around the parks with us. We are thinking about having lunch meats delivered to the room from GreenGrocer.com. Have you ever used the service?
