I live in Nevada but I am always planning my next Disneyland trip. It is the place that all of my siblings meet up to share some magic with the next generation.

For the last several weeks I have been working on my health. I am coming to Disneyland this weekend and am allowing myself a few treats but really want to eat healthy most the time. I know what my treats will be. What is everyone's healthy favorites in the parks?

I really like the chicken skewers with Tzatziki sauce from Paradise Garden Grill in DCA.  Bengal BBQ chicken is good, too.  I've also read that Dole Whips are lowish in calories (something like 90 cals/half cup: but I'm sure DL serving sizes are larger, even though there's that big hole in the middle, haha) - Spoonful_O_Sugar  601.0 #319 8:56PM
Bengal Bbq is a healthy choice, all the salads at various restaurants are great too as long as they aren't covered in dressing. We also enjoy the rice bowls @ Luckey Fortune (DCA) sub with brown rice.  Flos tater bake is pretty yummy.  Spicy chicken roll @ Carthay lounge are delicious and low carb.  Have a great trip!!!! - DisneyPrincessT  92.9 #3594 8:43PM
☝🏼 exactly this πŸ˜‰ - TinyDancerTay  120.2 #3151 9:22PM
I like the jolly holiday salad with basil vinaigrette.  - happiestplace  154.1 #2584 9:12PM

We are squeezing in one more trip while my daughter is still free! Since she is so close to being 3 should we bring her birth certificate to prove we aren't just trying to scam a free ticket by lying about her age? Has anyone been asked to prove a child's age? I'd rather not have a sensitive document on me at Disneyland but if needed I can bring it along. Thanks MW experts!

Ask on their website, they are always quick to answer - dianeburns1998  65.3 #4130 7:24PM
Personally we have never been asked. I took my daughter when she was just over 3 on a day trip and didn't buy her a ticket. after that we bought her a pass after a few months we had to tell them to scan it since they thought she was still 2! However, she is small... So I guess it really depends on her height and if she looks over 3 - MrsGrumpy2002  205.8 #1852 7:25PM

I was lucky enough to go to the Walt Disney Family Museum today. My favorite part is this model of Disneyland that was what built to include everything that was completed or in concept when Walt passed away. They said I could take pictures. This is as close as I could get to walking down Main Street.

Fantastic museum! A MUST for any Disney lover. I could stare at that diorama for hours😍 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5639.7 #17 9:15PM

We are looking to plan a large group vacation to Disney World in 2016 including a Disney Cruise. Does anyone have recommendations on coordinating a large group? Is a travel agent worth working with? We will all be traveling to Florida from different parts of the country.

I love Big Thunder Mountain! I usually rush through the Fastpass line and missed this!

This is a small ore stamping mill. It pounds the ore then is mixed with Mercury to retrieve the gold dust from the ore. The rocks that line the queue are real ore from Northern California.  - Plumiegirl  9393.2 #4 8:32PM
This stamping mill was actually taken out of a mine by my house. I think it's so neat how Walt repurposed it.  - Bassplayerswife  412.0 #507 8:39PM

Real mining gear – In the attraction queue and all around Big Thunder Mountain, you will see a century-old stamp mill, a hand-driven drill, press gears, picks, shovels and other artifacts. These objects are actual mining gear, purchased from abandoned mines in Nevada, Colorado, Minnesota and Wyoming. this is from the Disney blog. http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/09/five-things-you-might-have-missed-aboard-big-thunder-mountain-railroad-at-disneyland-park/ - Plumiegirl  9393.2 #4 12:11PM

Go with the Chef's choice all the way :) 0moorad0 and I did this and had completely different courses that were custom to our taste preferences which was great as we were able to taste a little bit of everything. We sat near the dessert prep area and the dessert chef working closest to us was extremely kind giving us extra dessert tastings. It was such a fantastic experience and truly was special. Not to mention 0moorad0 met Drake Bell in the men's restroom πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - Mad_Tea_Party  1168.7 #141 6:32PM

I've been there few times and I always had a good experience there. I told them I had a muscle problem in my lower back and they helped me out there as much as they could and it was really great experience. It is worth it  - CM_SmS1291  544.6 #356 11:36AM
