    I am a very pickey eater and a lot of the food on the menus at the table service restaurants doesn't appeal to me, but the desserts do! Would it be frowned upon to make ADRs and only order desserts?

    Hi, Jodi!  I am the queen of picky eating!   While you are not required to have a "minimum" purchase at any table service meal, you might want to give some restaurants a try!   The servers are very helpful and will work with your dietary needs or just plain being a choosey eater!   My husband always laughs when I order - keep the sauce off, make this plain, change the side dish, etc!  When I had the pleasure of dining at Jiko with my fellow Moms Panelists, I was so worried about the exotic choices.   But, I promise you, that was one of my favorite meals of all time!   I just explained to server how I liked my food, and it was prepared perfectly. 

    There are times when a meal simply cannot be changed, but explain to your server what you like and they will work with the chef to accommodate your wishes.   You can also try buffets, where a dessert table is included, and you pick and choose your favorite dishes. 

    So the answer to your question:  feel free to order just a dessert.  But, even the pickiest of eaters can usually find something good at most restaurants.    Good luck to you!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
