I have no problem with the healthier menus but the meatloaf at BOG looks unappealing even to me. We ordered it for my kids in Dec. They love meatloaf but took one bite at BOG and didn't touch it again. I didn't try it but it looked very dry and overcooked. I have no problem with having some of the normal options on the kids menu as well but it does get old. Esp when you take long trips like we do.

I must say that some of the changes on the adult menu at QS locations were disappointing though. I was very disappointed in the flatbread pizza at Pinocchio Village House. The crust was way too hard and it did not have enough sauce so it was very dry. Also the sauce was not very good either. I much preferred the old pizza there. I understand wanting healthier options but it needs to taste good as well as be healthy. I was also disappointed with some of the menu changes at Pop. Particularly the removal of the cheesesteak wrap.

Much of the food at Disney could use improvements in the taste dept. Esp the pasta at the buffets. I understand they are feeding a lot of people but they are supposed to be chefs and they are putting out a warmed up can of tomato sauce with some meat in it. At least that's what it tastes like to me.. You can do pasta on a large scale and have it taste much better than they do. . Also it doesn't make much of a difference what buffet you pick as they all have pretty much the same food. This also gets old. I must say this last trip when I left Disney I was sick of the food and ready to come home. When we go back I think we will be looking at other options for food. We have had the dining plan for all 6 of our trips but I don't know that we will get it the next time even if they offer free dining.

The thing I love about the DDP is that he can order whatever he wants that is safe for him, and I don't get charged extra for it. If I was paying OOP for it, I would get charged extra for allergen friendly or adult priced food. Thank you, Disney, for offering more than the typical kid friendly food. When I go out, if there is nothing my son can eat I bring his own food for him. For those picky eaters, try buffets at Disney. There is something for everyone including those kid friendly favorites like chicken nuggets, pizza, and mac & cheese.
My kids can not have any dairy due to a metabolic disorder and I agree they are usually great dealing with this. Our trip in Dec I found them to be less helpful at some places. The chef still came out at ts and a manager at qs but their choices at a handful of places were pretty limited. Hoop Dee Doo for example: we were not able to get any substitution except the corn was able to come without butter and for dessert they had popsicles. They no longer have toffuti or rice dream. They also no longer have french fries or any alternative for the mashed potatoes with milk. We also found that at most places chicken was the meat of choice as the other meats contained dairy of some sort. That was not going so well by the middle of our trip. My son was done with chicken. This trip he did not eat very much at all at ts meals. QS he ate more of but they also were still limiting. He could not have hot dogs since they switched from all beef and now contain organ meats. The dairy free buns for hamburgers are the worst. The reg buns they use to have for everyone before the change use to be dairy free and much better. Since the change they have dairy free junk buns.. These are even worst than the reg buns they now have. I am all for healthier as I said in a pp but it needs to taste good. Right now much of disney's food needs some improvements in that dept. Our first trip in April 2007 the food was much much better. It has declined year after year since IMO.
