Mickey Check Meals Are Now “Disney Check Meals” at Disney Restaurants

Confusing title? Yeah…lil bit.

Those of you with a sharp eye may have noticed that the Mickey Check nutrition program has a new name.

You will now find the Disney Check instead of the Mickey Check on kids’ menus and menu boards in Disney World and Disneyland. The emblem appears to be remaining the same with the green check mark, yellow Mickey, and purple border.

mickey check for kids meals

The Disney Check program works to develop kids’ meals that meet Disney Nutrition Guidelines and make them easily identifiable on kids’ menus. The Mickey Check emblem started appearing on menus in 2013 as part of a larger nutrition program launched in 2006 by Disney with the goal of providing nutritious food choices for kids.

Each Disney Check meal aims to deliver three or more nutritious food groups, including vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. They also use recipes and ingredients that incorporate less sodium, sugar, and saturated and trans fats.

So, you’ll still find nutritious meals for your kiddos, like the Mickey Meatloaf at Be Our Guest Restaurant, it’s just that they’ll be under the Disney Check name instead.

New Menu Items at Epcot’s Restaurant Marrakesh

We have always thought of EPCOT’s Restaurant Marrakesh as one of Disney World’s most interesting restaurants. It has taken great pains to make authentic Moroccan food appealing to guests with any palate. They are continuing in this tradition by adding some unique Moroccan specialties to their menu.
