    We will be visiting Disney soon with our three year old who is a very pick eater! When dining at a buffet restaurant such as Boma at AKL will we be required to purchase a dinner for her or can she eat off our plate or can we bring a PB&J in for her?

    Hi, Deborah!  I've been through the picky eater phase with at least a couple of my girls, so I feel your pain!  At a buffet restaurant, anyone aged between three and nine will be charged a child's price for the meal.  Only children aged two or younger can eat off of an adult's plate.  You may find, however, that there are foods that even a picky eater will eat at a Walt Disney World buffet!  You'll usually find at the buffet a section with foods that are very kid friendly - chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, french fries, and pizza are fairly typical at the kids' section of the buffet.  Children are welcome to choose from any of the other selections offered, and adults are welcome to choose the kid friendly food, but those foods are added specificially for kids.

    You might also be able to contact the restaurant ahead of time and let them know you have a special dietery concern.  If you don't find anything on the buffet that your picky princess will eat, they may be able to make something she will enjoy. 

    I hope you have a wonderful time on your upcoming vacation!
