What is the best way to survive staying at Disneyland for 48 hours?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created May 31, 2013 at 4:30 PM

My mother generously wants to take her grandchildren to Disneyland for a couple days. So I will be staying there...essentially trapped on the premises for two days and nights with my sister, daughter, niece and nephew. The last time I was there, I was eight and not Paleo. Has anyone been recently and do you know the least offensive places to eat? I am mainly worried about dinner.

Thank you for any advice.

What are the strict dietary requirements? i.e. are you celiac?

Completely missed the Disneyworld/land distinction, I rather like Russ's blog, he's takes a pretty reasonable approach to integrating paleo into life.

Thanks for the link Matt. Maybe there is some cross-over between DWorld and Dland.

Thanks, I will have to pack. The problem is that I am coming from the East Coast, not my own home...but I may buy a dehydrator first and try making my own jerky before the trip.

I did google it, but most results are for Disneyworld, not Disneyland. Also sometimes you want the opinions of Paleohackers you "know" and have a feel for rather than random people.

Well, I always get it whenever I try to eat ribs at my old favorite BBQ place, too. But being Celiac I used to have serious GERD issues that only flare back up with things like that. Might not cause it for everyone, but it's very obvious they rub those turkey legs down in some kind of grease and I'm pretty damn sure it ain't butter or coconut oil.

I call BS on vegetable oil causing heartburn.

I've tried those on two separate occasions and both times had aggravating heartburn, most likely from whatever vegetable oil they are rubbed with. Tasted like Canola.

In the park, find the cart with the turkey legs. They also have a pretty adequate salad selection at some of the restaurants, although you're stuck with commercial dressings. Worst-case - do a bit of fasting.

Assuming you mean the one in Anaheim. Outside the park there are great Korean barbecues, El Pollo Loco (not perfect, but sort-of-paleo fast food alternative) and the giant tacky-looking cabin in La Mirada, Northwoods, for steak.

I just went again a few weekends ago with a car full of kids and we brought all of our own food. We stayed overnight and so I cooked some things ahead of time (roast beef, chicken legs, mashed sweet potatoes, bacon, sausage, scrambed eggs) for the hotel to heat up in the microwave and we brought sardines, homemade tuna salad, almond butter and various fruits into the parks. We survived.

If you go to sit down restaurants you can actually ask for special orders. You can tell them no gluten and they will tell you what is not on the menu. Turkey legs are great there and you can always take your own food inside the park with you.

I am headed there in a month and will be in the same boat.

Don't know if they still have 'em, but when I was kid we always hit the chocolate dipped banana cart. Between that and the turkey legs and salad Kelly recommended you should be covered.
