How easy is it to get fresh fruit (or even fruit cups), at the kiosks that you can eat while waiting in the lines, like single servings of pineapple, (get these at the store and love'm) apple slices, granola bars, low-cal fruit drinks, etc? Same with a variety of vegies for dinner? I'm not hard-core, but I would like to know in case I need to bring stuff with me.
Thanks so much for any light you can shed on this. Also, if any dieters out there have tips that have helped them survive a Disney vacation, I would love to hear them.
You could probably call into the 407-WDW-DINE number and get more info on the restaurants or just call the 407-WDW-INFO line for the rest. Their normally pretty good at having the info in regards to diets, I had to call and find non-seafood options myself without worrying about cross contamination due to an allergy.
As for fruits and other items, each resort and park have fruit vendors which, I believe, you can also get granola. They are there all day, but they are wildly popular in the morning!
Plus, lots of kiosks around with whole fruit or fruit salads...
We were on a dining plan having dinner in England and they even allowed my wife to get two appetizers for her app/entree table service since the printed menu didn't have any veggie options under entrees.
As for snack stands, I know that DL carries fresh fruit, assorted fruit cups, fresh veggies, etc. You may need to call and speak to someone to get the exact placement of these stands throughout the parks, but I am sure that they are there.
And with any table service dining, when you are seated explain to the wait staff that you are vegetarian and what they recommend. This will often get you some unprinted suggestions too.
