The gang just got home from Disney world and it was a wonderful time. It’s hard to call waking up at 8am and running around until 10pm a vacation but it really was fun. We had minimal whining and only one breakdown – which was a huge success.
Then next day at breakfast we had our “quick meal.” Dan had an omelet, Ali had signature Mickey waffles and I had chocolate chip pancakes (I was on vacation). When we went to check out the lady informed us that the quick breakfast included everything but a dessert. This was our first red flag. Who eats dessert at breakfast?
The next day we had our quick lunch and they gave Dan and me a chocolate cake for dessert … each. Cake for lunch dessert, really? I mean a pudding, maybe a cookie sure but an entire piece of cake for lunch? Did they think I was going to have time to take a nap after this? This is Disney not the Caribbean.
After a few days of 1000-calorie breakfasts we all felt sluggish. But when Dan tried to get yogurt and cereal for breakfast and they told him no, that’s considered a “snack”. No wonder America is obese when a normal breakfast is considered a snack. Finally we found a place that served grapes as lunch dessert and we all sighed in relief. (I pretended to sigh a relief but it was more a sigh of sadness since I wouldn’t get a cookie) Thankfully we were walking around 8 hours per day so we only gained 5 pounds instead of 15. Too bad now I crave breakfast desserts.
