I have not been to the real Holy Land but I have read the bible and I have a very active imagination. I dream in color.
The Holy Land Experience is not what I picture when I read the bible. I am not going to write a post on what I think of the various organized religion's interpretations of the biblical and historic events portrayed in the shows and exhibits at this park. I am not going to write about my thoughts on the gold thrones, platinum loungers and glitzy get-ups on the figures in the wax museum. I am going to keep this about keeping the pounds off with Jesus.
There is a show called Sermon on the Mount. You walk out to a lovely grassy area and sit in the very hot sun while actor playing The Son stands on the Mount and recites the Sermon (blessed be the poor, blessed by the children . . . . ). In the bible it is at the Sermon on the Mount that Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes to feed the thousands. During THIS experience actors pass through the small crowd of theme park visitors with baskets of Pepperidge Farm Gold Fish Crackers, thereby combining loaves and fishes into a one-handed snack. I did not bite.
|Not my version of the bible|
|Yes, I walk on water|
Many theme parks will allow you to bring in a single meal if you have food issues. None allow glass containers. This park allowed our lunches and water bottles. Universal does not allow beverages other than a water bottle but I can bring a meal with me. Disney allows all manner of food and non-alcoholic beverages as long as there is no glass. Seaworld is does not allow beverages other than water and they will limit you to a small mount of food but no plastic bags or straws of any type are allowed. None of the parks let you bring in coolers. No wheeled containers either. I bring an insulated bag with my food and usually have small frozen water bottles in there if it is something that needs to stay cool.
|Not my last supper!|
What do you do to get through the theme parks without packing on extra pounds to take home as souvenirs?
