    I will be in WDW in January with my children, ages 4,7, and 9, regular dining plan. In case the kids tire of chicken nuggets, can you suggest one counter service restaurant in each park that offers something other than "standard" kids' menu choic

    Great question Leslie! Thanks for writing the panel. I hear you about trying to get more variety for kids meals. We tend  to book a few character buffets for dinners. In addition to having a great time with the characters, there's a fantastic variety to choose from. Here are a few of our favourite counter service spots:

    Magic Kingdom - Cosmic Ray's and Columbia Harbour House are a favourites. My daughter loves fish and chips, and Columbia Harbour House is a great spot for fish and yummy clam chowder.

    Epcot - Many spots to choose from, but my daughter's fave is Cantina San Angel in Mexico. They have a great combo plate, and the churros are delicious! The Boulangerie Patisserie in France offers great sandwiches, cheeses, quiche and more, and the best pastries! And don't forget to stop at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK for fish and chips.

    Animal Kingdom - Yak and Yeti has great Asian treats, and the chicken and ribs at the Flame Tree Barbeque are worth stopping in for.

    Hollywood Studios - We always tend to go to the ABC Commissary, and enjoy it every time. They have a great selection of delicious fresh choices.

    I know you only asked for the theme parks, but I need to add our most favourite counter service - Wolfgang Puck Express at Downtown Disney. In my opinion it's the best value and has delicious, made to order pastas, pizzas, rotisserie chicken and so much more. My daughter loves their meatball pizza!

    Happy dining!
