    Best place to eat post star wars run (healthy options available at restaurant too) What do I do with my kids while my husband and I run the half marathon? I believe Disney has baby sitter option, is that true? Thanks

    Greetings, Sandy! 

    I hope you are looking forward to the inaugural Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend. This event is sure to be out-of-this-world! When it comes to dining, Disneyland® Resort has some great options, here are a few of my favorites that also offer healthy choices.

    Downtown Disney District
    -Catal Res
    taurant: Dine on seasonal Mediterranean fare with great views of the Downtown Disney. My suggestion for a post-race meal is the Spaghettini Pasta. There are also a host of great salads. 

    Disney's California Adventure
    - Carthey Circle Restaurant: Arguably one of Disneyland® Resorts best dining experiences, you will feel transported into the golden ages of Hollywood as you enjoy Sesame-soy Glazed Skuna Bay Salmon or Whole Roasted Petit Chicken.

    Disneyland® Resort Hotels:
    -Napa Rose: Fresh, california-inspired fare make this my favorite dining experience in Disneyland®. With farm-to-table options you are sure to find the healthy cuisine you desire. The short ribs will melt in your mouth! 

    For childcare, I recommend the Disney-endorsed, in-room child care service Kid's Nite Out. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, a certified childcare provider will come to your room while you and your husband run. For more information, or to make a reservation call Kid's Nite Out at

    Hope this helps, Sandy. 

    May the Course be you!
