Can Picky Teenager Eat off the kids menu?

I have an ultra picky teen who would probably prefer chicken strips or kids pizza to many of the entrees I have seen listed at park restaurants. Does anyone know if they will let her order off of the kids menu? Both parents will be ordering adult meals and we do have a 9 year old that will be ordering off of the kids menu. thanks

If it's a counter service place they don't care

I'm not sure, my daughter (she was 15) refused to eat there because she didn't like the menu. I know they let her at margaritaville.

Question where to eat?

Could you suggest some of the good places to eat. We want to try Bubba Gumps and Three Broomsticks. We've never eaten at these places and hope they're o.k. Any other suggestions for in the parks or the hotels themselves. Thanks

Is the kids' menu significantly cheaper? And is it just up to age 9, or 12? I have a 12 year old and she's able to eat the kids menu items at most places around here, but I figure at the parks, they consider kids to be up to age 9 since that's how the tickets work...

It actually depends on how much you want to spend, and if you want a quick meal or a leisurely dinner. We have been to US and IOA many times, and my favorites are:

Dinner.....
Emerils on City Walk (for a pricey dinner)
Emerils Tchop Chop in the Royal Pacific Hotel (again, a bit pricy)
Hard Rock Hotel (City Walk)
Mythos (IOA)

Lunch.......
Three Broomsticks (IOA)
Mels Diner (US)
Lombards Landing (US).....not everyone likes, but their blackened salmon is great

The food court in the Simpsons area opened after we left, so I don't have a point of view.
Hope this helps

My son.....on the odd occasion he wasn`t too hungry has ordered kids meals at sit down places..........he`s 19

We did offer to pay adult prices but we never have.

2 years ago we were in Tchoup Chop think he just asked for teriyaki chicken or something like that off the kids menu and it was fine for him to do that.

Thanks...that is a relief!! I have also been doing my own research and called Mythos directly and they said anyone can order from the kids menu no problem. Then, I spoke to Citywalk reservations and the super nice lady, Tamara, that I spoke with said the policy varies according to the manager and offered to call the specific restaurants I wanted to know about and check with them and call me back. She called back 5 minutes later and said "no problem at any of the restaurants - no one is going to deny you food at Universal." Super impressed by that customer service.....think Universal must have some magic of its own...

offsite food related question

I have a bunch of free restaurant.com certificates that will basically get me half off of a $100 - $200 meal for my family of 4 at several of these places that are near Universal. Has anyone had any good/bad experiences at any of them. Although we are going to try several of the Universal offerings while we are onsite for 4 nights, we are also spending 5 nights at the HGVC near SeaWorld and thought some of these places might be nice to eat at a good discount. Thanks for any help you can give.

Bamboo Grille at Doubletree Hotel
Café Osceola at Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel
Cala Bella at Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel
Ciao Italia Ristorante
Elements Bar and Grill at Crowne Plaza Hotel
