New trend? Nutritional Data on the WDW web site

For the lunch menu at BoG, they're actually printing the nutritional data for each menu item on the web site. (And WOW, are there a couple of things to steer clear of!)

So far this is the only place where I have seen this data, but perhaps it'll be added to other locations as well. They even have the option to see how the numbers change if you remove certain parts of the dish.

It may be that they can do this here because the kitchen at BoG is so big, and they crank out the menu items in a very standardized way. One explanation I had heard in the past was that the food items weren't standardized enough to provide reliable numbers.

I have looked and looked and can't find nutritional information. What website did you locate this on? Link? I would love to have this information for all Disney restaurants.

On the "new" official Disney dining page, go to the page for Be Our Guest, and pull up the lunch menu. Each menu item has a link labeled (I think) "More Detail". That link brings up the nutritional data.

So far I have not run across nutritional data for any of the other restaurants - just BoG, and just lunch.

It's only Be Our Guest right now - and only lunch. No idea if they're planning on expanding to other restaurants.

Good info to have if you want it... But I'm not so sure I do!!! It's harder to pretend "something isn't so bad" when the numbers are staring at you!!

Sodium, schmodium. Take a look at the saturated fat numbers!

May as well head straight to the Haunted Mansion after eating that one! (Naturally, it was the one that appealed most to me when first reading the menu.)

Yes the saturated fat is bad. But the sodium for someone with high blood pressure (not me) will knock them flat before they hit the BOG exit.

Don't want to know what I've been eating all these years at Disney. It's probably criminal!

In some ways, that would be great information to have. In other ways, I'm not sure I want to know. I think I'll plan on splitting quite a few meals!

I'm glad you posted this or I never would have noticed. Personally I really like having the nutritional data as I think it does help me make better choices. I hope Disney rolls it out to more dining locations.

I think some of us "might" want to know (actually I am a "nutritional label addict" if there is such a thing), but at WDW I just know "small amounts" is the best way to go. I'd spend WAY too much time going through every menu's nutritional values LOL!!

Where on the "official" site are you even finding a lunch menu? I can only find a dinner menu? (not sure what you mean by the "new" site??)
