Garden Grill question
 
Last trip, I ate at Garden Grill as a party of three, so the preplated food was fine. This trip, I'm solo and thinking of eating there, but I'm concerned with wasting food. Is it possible to tell the waitstaff to just bring certain foods or is everything already plated, and I'm going to end up with a big pile of uneaten food on my plate and a very guilty look on my face? :confused3

Never hurts to ask!! But IIRC, I think when we had been there a bit, I remember them asking if we wanted any more of anything, and they brought out a specific dish of whatever it was. So I would not imagine that your request would be difficult.

I dont have an answer but would like to know what you find out. Im dining solo there in October and was wondering the same thing for here and 'Ohanas. Im assuming they will bring out whatever I ask. Servers have always been pretty reasonable in my experience.

DD10 and I ate at GG a few weeks ago. Even though DD is considered an adult, our server asked her if she wanted the kid's option and she said yes. I also asked for no fish (DD had just fed them on the Behind the Seeds tour and was freaked out about seeing it on the plate lol). I also asked for my meat a little more well done. They are so very accommodating! The portions for DD and I were both perfect (even though it looked like a lot at first! We managed to eat it all as it is all so good!)
I'm sure they will be happy to bring or not bring whatever you would like. They seem to have a good handle on portion sizes for the size of your party. Go hungry for sure!!

Yes, this has also been the case with me and my dd. She didn't want any of the "adult" food, just the "kids" food, so they brought me a plate with a little of each item that I wanted. I also had the salad as well. This is what my plate looked like at the time (keep in mind some of the food is different as the menu does change there a few times a year).

BTW, this is one of my favorite character meals in all of WDW. I'm sure the CM traveling with the characters will be more than happy to take pictures of you with the characters.:thumbsup2

I ate there with an infant (he didn't eat there) and they brought a plate with a small amount of everything, then asked me if I wanted more of anything in particular. If there is something you know you won't eat ahead of time, I'm sure you may tell them to leave that off your plate.

I ate solo at the Garden Grill last August and was able to tell them exactly what I wanted and even get seconds on some things :woohoo:
