    My 17 year old is a very picky eater and when it comes to table service there aren't many menus he will eat from ~ can he order from the kids menu? I don't want to miss out on good table service eats b/c of a picky teenager!

    Hey Jennifer!  I completely understand your concern in making sure everyone in your family is happy when it comes to dining!  I have a child that is a picky eater as well!  When dining at a restaurant that is an all-you-care-to-eat or buffet restaurant, your seventeen-year-old will still be charged as an adult. With that being said, at table-service restaurants that offer an A la Carte menu, it has been my experience that my teenager daughter has been allowed to order from the children's menu or order a larger-sized portion of an item off the children's menu at every restaurant we have visited. We have also dined at 'Ohana, which is an all-you-care-to-eat dining location and our server offered our children the option of ordering chicken fingers and french fries which is not featured on their menu. I have found the restaurants at Walt Disney World to be very accommodating. I would recommend just asking your server and I'm sure they will do their absolute best to make sure your teenager has a great dining experience! I hope this information helps!  Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions.  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Jennifer!
    Bon Appétit,
