BOG kids menu

Our family of 5 would like to eat lunch at BOG during our June trip. I have 1 picky dd and a ds with sensory issues. There isn't anything on the menu that either one of them would eat. My question is, can we bring a counter service meal in from a nearby restaurant?
Thanks for any help or ideas.

This type of question has been widely discussed here on the DIS. It is a pretty controversial subject.
Would you bring Wendy's food into a MacDonald's for lunch? I wouldn't.
There are many, many, many restaurants in the MK and WDW that cater to picky kids. BOG happens to not, by some's definition.
Is there somewhere else you can all eat together?

This response is based off eating at BOG for lunch not dinner. At dinner since it is a TS then I would not.

I have tanken Long John Silvers into Wendy's. I have taken Flame Tree BQ into Pizzafari. So what you are stating is because we have picky kids, the adults should not be aloud to eat there?

I have done this as well! I used to take McDonalds into a restaurant my husband and I wanted to eat in because my son didn't want anything there. No biggie. I wouldn't have ordered him food there anyway, so it's no loss for them. It's gain, in fact, because I went there and spent my money. People need to mind their own beez-nazz! LOL

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to ruffle feathers. It's somewhere we would like to eat because it is new and we have been to Disney many times so we have hit most of the other restaurants.
When you bring up McDonalds/Wendys, you are talking about competitors. Do you really consider 2 restaurants within the Magic Kingdom competitors? They are both Disney owned.

You talking Lunch OR Dinner? 2 different services. Mixing CS with CS OR mixing CS with TS.

OK then I stick with what I said above. I say it is OK. We will probably go to Pinocchio's and grab the kids the adult chicken nugget basket and carry it in with us. We will get them drinks at BOG. Either way Disney is getting money to feed 4 people.

I donít see a problem with what the OP is suggesting. The BOG kidís lunch menu is kind of bad. I know my children wouldnít eat from it.

Op, i just had your same situation. I was dying to try BOG for lunch - we had one day pre cruise in the mk. Dd7 is picky but i figured we'd make the best of it. What a bust. The kids menu just doesnt work for kids that eat only kids food like mine do. Even the mickey turkey meatloaf turned out to have red pepper in it and my kids wouldnt eat it. Even the chocolate cupcake was a little too adult for her and she wouldnt eat it. This is the only place in disney where i couldnt feed my kids (and we visit often). Yes the restaurant is fantastic. But my advice is if the menu seems like it won't work for your kids, there's a good chance it won't. Next time, i'd eat somewhere else.

I understand. My son has sensory issues. I'm sure you can take a Pbj sandwich in with you

If, we REALLY wanted BOG, but kids wouldn't eat off the menu? I would feed them BEFOREHAND and let them eat a cupcake at BOG. I wouldn't bring In food from another restaurant.

Feed the kids before you go in and get their dessert from BOG
