    Hi there! My son is extremely picky and will most likely not eat anything off the menus at the table service restaurants. I know we can bring food into the park, but are we able to bring food into the restaurants as well? Thanks!

    Hiya Heather,

    Welcome to planDisney! Dining at Walt Disney World Resort is one of my not-so-secret passions. I love the wide range of dishes available at all of the different table service locations. I also love that when I want some chicken fingers and fries, I can satisfy that craving.

    Even the pickiest eaters can find something to enjoy at the Most Magical Place on Earth. As a mom, I completely understand that your little Mouseketeer may only be interested in enjoying something off of the menu sometimes. I have definitely seen Guests sometimes bring outside food into different locations, but I was unaware of any designated policy about this. Luckily, I was able to get in touch with a Cast Member who was able to “dig a little deeper” for me. Unfortunately, there is no set policy allowing outside food into a table service location. It truly depends upon the location whether or not it is permitted. For example, some signature dining and restaurants that require pre-payment are not likely to allow outside food. I recommend speaking to the Cast Member at the host stand at the location when you arrive to see if they would allow you to bring in a different meal for your little one.

    I hope this was helpful, Heather. As a reminder, make sure that your outside food is not in a glass container and doesn’t require heating, reheating, refrigeration, or temperature control. Please come back and see us if there is anything else we can help with.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
