Kids are on vacation too. Save the bland chicken breast and broccoli for home.
I said to my husband when the menu came out that I'D be happy to order off this kids menu! So, yeah, some of us do enjoy eating this way, kids and adults alike. And it's totally cool if other people don't...that's why there are tons of different restaurants on property with all kinds of food.

Hey, I'd like it myself too. I always find the adult portion too big. Will they allow an adult to order from the kid's menu?

The menu itself is fine. The presentation, however, is a different story. No need to attempt to make the plates look fancy. The meatloaf and pork dish appear particularly unappetizing. Lots of adults would be freaked out when served dishes that look that bad, let alone kids.

Am I the only one who thinks the pork looks good? I hate when pulled pork is drowned in BBQ sauce. I prefer when it's plain and you can add as much or little as you like.

I agree the presentation is lacking. My kids are elated at the menu though. I really really wish they would have put ratatouille on the kids menu though. My youngest son adores it and will probably be eating off my plate because I will be ordering it.

Just asked my daughter what she thought of the menu and she thought it looked/sounded good. Her favourite for looks was (obviously) the Mickey-shaped meatloaf. Her favourite from my description was the carved turkey sandwich. My daughter is 5.

Most kids I know get tired of the same thing over and over again. Out lf all my friends that have children and the friends of my children that have spent time at our home, only 2 have been picky eaters (one of those kids was a chicken tender only) kind of child. I remember one summer we went to so many ball games and cook-outs that my kids both.said they couldn't eat another hot dog or hamburger. So I love seeing the variety that BOG is offering up.

My 3 children would eat from the kids' or adult menu. They are 12, 11, 7. The food looks good to them. My youngest doesn't like fried food, so chicken nuggets and french fries are not interesting to her.

I have probably the most picky eater in the world. What is one of the 2 things he will eat off any menu? Grilled Chicken. So we're good.

I'm glad there is no mac and cheese or pizza on the menu. My other kid isn't that picky but she'll always order one of those if it's available. Now she will be forced to order the fish or steak or chicken that she would eat at home.
