    We have an autistic 4 yr old that is an extremely picky eater. We made ADR's at several places that do not have what she likes on the menu. Will the TS let us bring in food from QS for her?

    My youngest daughter has been diagnosed within the spectrum of autism.  She struggled with certain foods, environments, noises, change in routine.  When we would go to the various restaurants, we did bring some snacks, but discovered if it was possible the restaurant would make her a special dish.  It didn't always happen that way, but when it did, it was magical.  I would suggest upon arrival review the buffet or food choices, if your little one can not find what she is willing to eat ask the server if there may be an alternative.  I never saw my daughter eat so much, and she began to try new things, but it was a slow process.  My little girl wouldn't eat anything that touched another food item that year.  It was crazy making for me, but it made sense to her.  I hope this helps..have a fabulous trip!!!
