    Which table-service restaurant in Epcot's World Showcase is the best for a family with picky eaters, yet also has a fun and entertaining atmoshphere?

    I have plenty of experience with picky eaters (one of my daughters is so fussy that she thinks strawberries are "too spicy"). Let me first say that every restaurant in the World Showcase has a children's menu featuring basic items like chicken and pasta. These are always an option for the unadventurous. Also, the restaurant in Italy is changing hands in the near future, but the bread and pasta staples of Italian cooking are a safe bet for most people. 

    If you're looking for more entertainment with your meal, I'd suggest the Restaurant Marrakesh in Morocco. The chicken kebabs and lemon chicken are delicious and are enough like a dish you might prepare at home that your picky eaters will find them non-threatening. As for the entertainment, several times throughout the day, dancers will perform traditional Moroccan belly dances. After the performance, they will invite children to perform with them and may even offer a lesson to an uninhibited adult. We've also had good luck at the Biergarten in Germany. The food buffet features German wursts (I tell my daughter that they're hot dogs) and spaetzel (noodles), as well as a yummy apple cake. The entertainment here is a German polka band. Guests are invited to dance to the music and are sometimes asked to join the band on stage to play a few notes on a traditional German instrument.

    Have fun!
