    Picky child alert. WDW trip with Child who will do is plain noodles (with butter). I can't find quick service options with this on the menu. Can you share what quick service spots at each park if any exist, to get plain noodles?

    Hiya Sara!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for stopping by to ask us this magical question! Travelling with picky eaters can be challenging, but the Walt Disney World Resort has so many food options that I am sure we can find options your little chef will enjoy! 

    Unfortunately, when it comes to quick service food & beverage locations, most restaurants offer chicken strips, mac and cheese or Uncrustables as their kid's meals. I have also found that pasta dishes other than mac and cheese are easier to find at the Resort food courts than in the parks, although there are some options. At Disney's Hollywood Studios, for example, Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo does offer delicious pasta rings with a vegetarian meat sauce, so you could ask for this meal without the sauce. However, I believe your best bet would be to make dining reservations at full-service restaurants, which are typically more able to accommodate food requests for little ones. Plus, most theme parks have an Italian restaurant which would most likely be able to fulfill this request. For example, you could eat at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Tony's Town Square Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park or Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria at EPCOT. In any case, definitely ask the Cast Members what options they may be able to offer, as Disney Cast Members are always happy to help.

    To find food options during your stay, I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app. Not only are mobile food orders perfect for avoiding the lines and making sure nobody gets "hangry" (which I am guilty of), but it also gives you access to the menus of all food and beverage locations on Disney property. Plus, you can use the interactive map to find the options available near you! In the map, click on the arrow at the top of your screen and select "Dining" from the drop-down menu. If you find a restaurant that may fit your needs, you can even join the app walk-in waitlist or get directions. With all its amazing features, the My Disney Experience mobile app is a must-have, in my opinion!

    I hope this was helpful, Sara, and that you and your little chef will have the best vacation on your next Walt Disney World Resort trip. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach back out. As Remy says, you are always welcome "chez Remy!"

    Have a magical day and bon appétit!
