    Hi. We are traveling with a child who is a picky eater. The adults wants to eat at Teppan Edo. Are we able to bring in a hotdog or piece of pizza for the kid to eat? He only eats a few things. Thank you!

    Hey there, Christina! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    Parents of picky eaters unite! As a mom of a picky eater, I definitely understand the struggle of balancing wanting to try new and more adventurous dining experiences while making sure that my daughter's belly is full and happy on our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. No one wants any not-so-magical moments with a hangry kiddo during a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth, that's for sure! I'm honored to help you keep little bellies full and the magic alive on your upcoming vacation!

    Japan is one of my favorite EPCOT World Showcase Pavilions, and Teppan Edo is always one of my favorite dining experiences. Last summer, our best friends and my family dined here and had the most wonderful time with the most delicious food. To my surprise, the three kiddos that were with us, including my picky eater, also had a great experience! As someone familiar with the challenges of having a picky eater, you can understand how thrilled I was when I saw that my daughter LOVED the hibachi noodles! Maybe your picky eater will surprise you, too! If not, Hakuna Matata (it means no worries)!

    In my experience, Walt Disney World Resort restaurants have always been very accommodating to my choosy daughter. If there is nothing on the menu that your child will enjoy, ask your server for some suggestions. They're pros! However, I must admit that I have been known to bring in some munchies for my little one to snack on while we enjoy dinner, and I have never had any issues with this. I have also grabbed my daughter her favorite meal, a Starbucks bacon gouda sandwich (See? Picky!) to fill her belly before enjoying dinner at a more adventurous restaurant. I would just discuss your situation with the host or your server upon your arrival. If anyone knows how to accommodate little ones, it's Disney! Enjoy!

    Christina, I am SO excited that you will be in EPCOT during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! With the gorgeous topiaries and gardens, EPCOT has never looked more beautiful, and there are so many fresh flavors at the Outdoor Kitchens, even a picky eater can find something to enjoy! 

    Christina, I am wishing you (and your choosy kiddo) THE most magical upcoming vacation! Please stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon!
