    Hi Amanda. Another food question! Looking for restaurants we haven't been to before. DD12 (picky) and DD15 (adventurous) Trying to narrow down a couple of choices: . TRex OR Raglan Road at DTD? Tutto OR VIa Napoli at Epcot? Your opinions? Thank you!

    Hi Jana! I definitely have experience dining with picky eaters! I'm a foodie who'll try just about anything, but my 13-year-old's diet is extremely limited. Thankfully the restaurants at Walt Disney World are generally able to please both picky and adventurous eaters.

    I recommend reviewing the online menus of the restaurants you're considering to see which are more likely to appeal to all the members of your family. In Epcot, both Tutto Italia and Via Napoli offer delicious Italian food, but Via Napoli is generally my family's restaurant of choice. My picky son doesn't eat pasta, but he loves pizza. Family members who want pasta can order that at both Tutto Italia and Via Napoli, but pizza is on the menu only at Via Napoli.  The generous mezzo metro pizza at Via Napoli makes a economical meal for a family of four, and you can order it with lots of toppings on one half for the adventurous eaters and plain cheese on the other for the pickier ones.

    At Downtown Disney, Raglan Road is definitely a gourmet destination for foodies, while T-Rex is wildly popular with families with dinosaur-loving kids. Although Raglan Road has great and unique items on its menu, I think you're more likely to find something for the picky eater in your family at T-Rex. The restaurant's life-size animatronic dinosaurs make a trip to T-Rex lots of fun, and the menu is huge with varied options to please both your picky eater as well the adventurous one. 

    Thanks so much for visiting me again here at the Moms Panel Jana! If you have more questions I'd love to help! Just ask!
