The beautiful thing about EPCOT is that you can get food from anywhere in mere minutes. I have taken my food from France over to America for years, but now that the bakery has seating, the rest of my family is coming to ME.

Totally agree, whoever is ordering where you are going to sit orders the drinks (unless on DP of course).

If the rest of your party can't find something to eat politely tell them to suck it up you're at DISNEY!!! (just kidding)

How about Pizza from Italy (to go counter).

I though Japan or China would be the place with basic fried rice and noodles or teriyaki but they don't offer that.

Suggestions for basic/ picky eaters? No seafood or Mexican....or burgers.
Japan's QS (Katsura Grill) does serve plain steamed rice as a side dish.....and they have teriyaki meals both for kids and adults. Lotus Blossom in China has a shrimp fried rice, so I would guess that if you asked just for fried rice they'd be able to do that for you.

The nice thing about QS meals is that you can get them to go....and eat them wherever you want. So if YOU want Japanese and they want American then just decide where to meet to eat. We've taken fish & chips from England all the way to the seating at Japan so that one of our party can have sushi....and we've done other mix and match meals as well. No one has ever looked at us strange or asked us to not take up table space when we bought food somewhere else....in fact I see people sitting at these QS eating the lunch they brought from home! Especially at Yorkshire Fish...it's such a lovely spot to eat.

Something you might try to see if your picky eaters might become a little more adventurous...do an "Around the World meal".....stop at each country and order one item to share. It's not a commitment by anyone to a whole meal, so try one bite and if you don't like it, no problem, we'll have something in a few minutes at the next country. While I know there are kids with food issues, a lot of time kids are scared to try something new in case they won't like it.....and so they miss out on something that might be a favorite if they would just try.

We actually do this quite often not because the girls are picky eaters, but because we want EVERYTHING, lol.....so we get one meal and share it amongst the 3 of us at several countries and by the time we're done we've had a sample of almost all our favorites but no one is moaning over eating too much! We travel a lot and find that even outside Disney this is a good strategy....when we aren't sure if we're going to like something we just get one serving to try....if it's great we can all get more....if it's so-so or ugh, we just move on to something else. We've tried things in foreign countries that I would never have even considered.....because we know it's just a few bites between the 3 or 4 of us, so it's not really even a waste of money because by the time everyone has a bite or two it's almost gone anyway, lol.

Now Dole Whips....get your own, this one is mine!

The pizza window is only open during certain, high crowd times (I didn't check when the OP was going, if it was even listed), so this may not be an option. Also, as a warning, it is not the same as the pizza served inside of Via Napoli, but rather standard "Disney Pizza" which tends to get so-so reviews (and that's putting it nicely ).

We do CS at Epcot

a lot and have found a lot of great choices even with my picky wife. Sunshine Seasons will make food to order if there is some ingredient on a dish you do not like. Last time we were there we grabbed children's boxes with a turkey wrap. carrots and grapes...affordable and very tasty!

My wife loves the fried rice at Lotus Blossom and the ham and cheese at the bakery in France. We prefer Cooks of Dublin for fish and chips and eat the buffet at the Beirgarten in Germany to the CS.

This is my favorite. I also like Sunshine Seasons.

We all had what we wanted and a very nice meal. Win/win.
Agreed! We have done that before . It was just DH and I and sometimes we wanted things at the same place and sometimes we didn't. When we got things at different places we did it one of 2 ways...1) Split up, grabbed what we wanted and met up somewhere to eat together -or- 2) One person ate and then the other person got what they wanted (not everyone is always hungry at the same time, this plan works great for those times).
