    We will be traveling with a 2yr old very picky eater. If we were to dine at a table service location that does not offer chicken tenders, can we bring in food to restaurant, say from like a counter service location?

    Hi there, Lisa!

    It’s always great when you stop by planDisney with your question! 

    I, too, have an immensely picky eater and if it weren’t for the yummy chicken tenders and fries at the Theme Parks, this mama would have a not so magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth! I’ll be honest, I’ve tried everything to get my little Mousketeer to try something new; and sometimes, the best way to do that is at Walt Disney World Resort! My secret to this? I may or may not offer delicious Character Gummies from Goofy’s Candy Company for dessert! 

    Although it is completely at the discretion of the table service restaurant you’re dining at, I’ve known Walt Disney World Resort dining to be very accommodating when it comes to picky eaters. Before going inside the restaurant, you can stop by to ask a host if it’s possible to bring a meal from a Quick Service restaurant. I’ve even stopped by to explain our situation and the chef has offered to make my little Mouseketeer chicken nuggets at the restaurant! Chefs at Walt Disney World Resort are pros at dealing with picky eaters and I have never had a bad experience dining around The Most Magical Place on Earth. I’m sure you will find your experience to be similar. 

    Lisa, as you begin to plan your magical vacation, keep in mind that Walt Disney World Resort has some incredible places to dine, and reservations are recommended. Also, check out the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones guide! There, you will find magical experiences for little ones at each Theme Park. With so much to do, you’ll see that Walt Disney World Resort truly is for everyone!

    I’m wishing you the most enchanting vacation full of delectable delights, Lisa!
