    We will be traveling in June with the Dining Plan that has a table service meal each day. My 10 yr old is extremely picky and I've been searching menus and buffets (which my husband prefers) trying to find where to eat. Any suggestions to make it work?

    It can be really frustrating to deal with a picky eater!  I think, however, if your husband prefers buffet dining, your best bet is to book as many of those as you would like.  Each of the buffets features a child's buffet that offers kid friendly things such as pizza, chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese and french fries.  But even if your son doesn't eat the typical kid fare, a buffet meal will give him the option of various proteins, assorted vegetable options, salads, soups, and plenty of desserts.

    Our family's favorite buffets include Boma - which has a decidedly African flavor, but still has the kid friendly options; Chef Mickey's, for some great character fun; and the Crystal Palace, because we love Pooh.

    Another option that might work for both your husband and your son is 'Ohana.  This is not a buffet, but it is an all you care to eat meal, featuring grilled meats, shrimp, and vegetables.  There is an alternative child's meal option available if your son does not like he typical fare here.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
