I know it's a "kid" meal, but 1/2 of 1/2 a sandwich & 3-4 fries? Really?

Every day I read complaints that there is not enough variety for kids at WDW. Now let's hear the complaints that there are no chicken nuggets.

My oldest son would have. He can't now but only because he's not a kid.

I remember one time, he was probably about 5 or 6, he picked some cauliflower off a relish tray. I was just sure he didn't know what it was. He told me had tried it at a friend's house and he liked it. He's always like to try new foods.

You are so right! Reading some of these comments from adults, mind you, makes me realize why there are so many children that are picky eaters. I don't know whether to laugh or be sick. I grew up eating these type foods (no pulling out the P & J sandwiches) and loving them, so did our children and grandchildren - no picky eaters allowed in our family.

I've already seen threads bemoaning the lack of nuggets, mac & cheese, etc. at BOG, just like the threads bemoaning the lack of more variety/adventurous foods for the kiddie menu.

Just can't please the masses

If a menu does not appeal to us, we don't eat there. That goes for Disney or anywhere else.

Based on those photos, I wouldn't bother eating there. The food looks disgusting.

Maybe the whole point is that Disney want to try encourage different eating in children by putting this type of menu in a location many children will want to eat in and visit ? I know for a fact that the more varied menus at some Disney places have made me try different foods.

I think the menu is designed for crowd controll......offer things they dont want to eat, and the crowds will not be as bad.

the dinner menu does not appeal to me at all.....


That meatloaf look nasty!!!!!!

As a kid, I would have eaten pretty much everything that is offered on that kid's menu. I personally think it is nice to see something different from the norm. Plus those awesome cupcakes would have been a huge incentive to finish my veggies.

Of course, that's what they're doing.
It's the "right thing to do." (Give me a break!!)

But, they can't MAKE people eat something they don't want to eat.

Hence why Les Chefs de France serves hamburgers. Some people, especially children, really wont eat the food.

This appears to be the direction Disney is going.

I think the food court at Art of Animation got similar complaints when they didn't offer chicken nuggets or burgers as children's meals, I think they do have pizza though. I remember one person saying they'd still stay there, but would walk to Pop Century to eat so their kid could get nuggets.

Besides the sandwich, DS would eat any of those. I don't know where he gets it though. At Coral reef he asked for the kids fish and ate almost all of it. He will NOT eat a grilled cheese sandwich or mashed potatoes though.
