    Celebrating daughter's 6th bday @ WDW 10/18-10/26.   Any idea if Disney wil be adding healthful options for children (outside of buffets) Grilled Chix/potato/mixed veg,etc

    Hi, Jenifer!  I am finding more and more that you can opt for healthier choices for children at many of the Walt Disney World restaurants.  This week, I have seen grilled chicken, beef tenderloin, pan roasted flounder, and even tandoori chicken - all on kids menus! 

    We've been selecting appetizers and side dishes that include fresh fruit and salad, and even places that I traditionally expected to find only unhealthy options are offering fresh fruit or applesauce as a side dish.  Things are definitely improving in terms of kid cuisine at Walt Disney World.

    If you are not on the dining plan and can't find anything on a children's menu that is suitable, you can always order a salad and an appetizer for smaller appetites.  We have done that numerous times, as I try really hard not to give the girls burgers and chicken nuggets unless it's a special treat. 

    You can check out all of the Walt Disney World menus for children at by clicking on the dining tab at the top of the page.

    I hope the birthday celebration is magical!
