    Does everyone on a reservation at Hoop Dee Do or Hollywood & Vine have to pay? We have a VERY picky 5 year old who won't eat at either spot and I really don't want to pay for her to sit there while the other 6 of us enjoy a nice meal.

    Hi Matthew, welcome to planDisney! We are excited that you will "be our guest" at Walt Disney World Resort very soon, and I am happy to help you with your question today!

    I hope you and your family have a hoot at Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue! I spoke to a Cast Member, and while your Mouseketeer may not enjoy any of the food available, you will still have to pay for her to dine here, as well as Hollywood & Vine. I understand the frustration of traveling with picky eaters (I have one as well!) and if you feel that you need to cancel your reservation, you will need to cancel at least one day before your reservation. Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue reservations cannot be modified. For Hollywood & Vine, you can cancel up to two hours before your reservation, otherwise, you may have to pay a $10 per person fee (price is subject to change). If you still wish to dine at these two locations, you can always pack snacks to bring for your Mouseketeer.

    As a mama with a picky eater, I have found that buffets and restaurants with family-style meals are among the best options when it comes to table service restaurants. Some of my family's favorites include Garden Grill Restaurant at EPCOT, Cape May Cafe at Disney's Beach Club Resort, and The Crystal Palace at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park. For quick-service options, my family loves Casey's Corner at Magic Kingdom, and Flame Tree Barbecue at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park are other great options. 

    I am sorry I wasn't able to give you the magical news you wanted Matthew, but I hope these alternative restaurants help you with your planning. Stop by planDisney again with other questions before your visit, you've got a friend in me!
