Hello all. I'm back from a 5-day stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. It was just me and my DH, Rick. My first trip to the World was during Christmas week in 1971 and I go back as much as I can. This was my 17th trip. Our kids are grown and we're enjoying empty nester trips! Our DD was married a year and a half ago. My DH and I were both overweight. The wedding was a motivation to get in shape. DH lost 90 pounds and I lost 50. I was determined to look good in those wedding pictures! We're trying hard to maintain the weight loss and find that it's hard to do when we eat out. We want to enjoy ourselves, but we worked too hard losing that weight to put it back on. So, here's my dining report that's written from the perspective of someone who was trying hard to balance enjoying our favorite WDW restaurants with not going overboard. We drove to Orlando from Chicago, stopping to visit our DD and SIL in Atlanta. I'll include our dining experiences along the way.
