    My nine year old son has autism and is extremely picky when it comes to food. He basically just wants chicken tenders and fruits. Any suggestions on what restaurants have chicken baskets?

    Greetings, Liana, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I completely understand your situation, as my Autistic son loves his chicken tenders too. Rest assured, Liana, chicken nuggets, tenders, and strips are offered at many Quick-Service and Table-Service restaurants at Walt Disney World Resort. I will suggest some of our favorite Quick-Service locations with comfortable seating and restrooms nearby, from each Theme Park if I may.

    Magic Kingdom Park- Columbia Harbour House, Cosmic Ray's Starlight Café and Golden Oak Outpost.
    Epcot- Electric Umbrella, Liberty Inn, and Tangierine Cafe.
    Disney's Hollywood Studios- ABC Commissary, Backlot Express, and Rosie's All-American Café.
    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park- Restaurantosaurus.

    Liana, may I offer Disney's Autism and Cognitive Disabilities Services online guide in preparation for your visit to optimize your son's experiences and make him more comfortable? Of great assistance to me are Disability Access Service (DAS) and Resource for Guests with Cognitive Disabilities offering helpful tips and advice from the perspective of families like ours.

    Best Disney Wishes and Dishes!
