But you have to place your order, then they seat you (or you are seated) and they bring the food to you. So, I don't think people are going to be able to wander past the entrance line to go look around.

We do eat burgers and chicken fingers sometimes as a treat but it's certainly not the norm and I can't imagine that there are many kids out there that live strictly on junk food, so I guess that the majority of children would find something they liked on the menu.
Actually, there are plenty of kids who are allowed to eat only chicken fingers, and McDonald's. Hence, the childhood obesity problem.

If people don't think their child will eat the food there, don't go. I'm actually excited about the menu..between people complaining about the kiddie menu and the whining about beer and wine being served, maybe an ADR won't be that hard to get.

~Thanks for sharing! I think the kids menu is adorable, and I hope they create some kiddie cocktails, too! Disney is pretty flexible when it comes to dining, so I wouldn't be surprised if they have some chicken nuggets and fries on hand in the back for special requests. I don't blame them one bit for not putting it on the menu because it will just cheapen it, lol.

Now, my kids can be a little picky at times and I've got one kiddo with textural /sensory issues with his disability.Up until this past summer, he would not eat meat. Then , while at Disney, he said "I'm going to try something new every day we are here". And while it took a second, something clicked... And he ate any meat we put in front of him during our 13 day trip!!!..
I also have one that lives anything healthy (he would pick strawberries or broccoli over a jolly rancher).
So when I opened this thread, I began to worry because I hadnt seen the menu yet...I just looked and...
It looks like dinner!!! Not overly processed crap on a bun..lol. I'm thankful to see these options.

I have two children. One was picky, the other would eat anything put in front of him. No one made a fuss. No one groomed the one child to be picky. She'd simply rather go hungry than eat something she didn't like. And believe me, she'd let herself get so hungry, she'd end up with a tummy ache (even barfing!) at her next meal. So she'd eat less. And so on...

We simply focussed on teaching her good manners (try a bite of everything, say "no thank you", excuse yourself politely, and go to the kitchen to make a peanut butter sandwich). Sometimes at fancy meals, she'd cry if she couldn't find anything she considered edible. She hated to feel left out of the meal.

We reassured her she'd outgrow picky eating. And you know what? She did! She was nine, and coincidentally happened to be vacationing at Disney for the first time, when she finally ate a whole hotdog - and liked it! Yeah, it's junk food, but it was a huge step past chicken breast and white rice, so we celebrated the occasion anyway. I bet the BOG would have been a huge help. Anyway, now she's 16, and will eat practically anything I make. Even chili! Sometimes.
I have to agree with you. I was a very picky eater as a child and grew out of it. I did a lot of the things you mentioned above...

And yay for another Disney victory overcoming food "aversion".!!!!

That's true, but from what I understand you can only be inside after you have ordered and have been seated, and can't be accessed unless you are ordering lunch.The dinner dining will be entirely separate, and only diners will be admitted, and it will only be in two of the three dining areas (lunch will be in all three dining areas).

Finally a kids menu worth trying! While nuggets and burgers are fine now and then Disney has really been dumbing down kids with these basic and unhealthy options.... I am glad there's something more 'adventurous' for the lack of a better word.

I agree that some more variety in kids meals at Disney would be a great thing. But did all that variety have to be in one restaurant? Why not a mix of a couple traditional kid meal choices and a couple creative alternatives within each location? I can't imagine the hard core chicken nugget eaters of the world are going to feel better knowing they serve hot dogs and chicken nuggets over at CRT.

If a menu does not appeal to us, we don't eat there. That goes for Disney or anywhere else.

Based on those photos, I wouldn't bother eating there. The food looks disgusting.

Personally super happy. My DD despises kids menus because they are all the same. This is right up her alley. Can't wait to try it!

Actually it is my picky chicken nugget kid that is skinny scrawny. She would eat chicken nuggets every meal if allowed. That or white pasta. She is a twig.

I make real chicken nuggets for her and make her try everything I make. She honestly tries to like it....but there are only a handful of things she eats.

I don't indulge her either. She goes to bed Without having dinner a lot.....but oddly I don't think hungry. I don't make an issue of it because I think THAT is what causes eating problems.

While I like the kids menu and think it's a great idea, we have a picky eater in our family. My stepson is very picky about what he eats. When he lived with his mother she never made him eat veggies and fruits. He basically got to eat whatever he wanted, whenever he wanted cause she didn't want to be a parent and was more concerned with being his friend. His diet consisted of hotdogs, chicken nuggets, fries, chips, and soda. Basically if it was junk he ate it. Once my DH got full custody it has been a constant battle to get him to eat anything but junk food. He is almost 12 and still sits at the table and cries cause he doesn't want to eat the good meal that have been put on the table. Sometimes it's just about what it looks like. This is just not something we want to suffer through on vacation so I canceled my plans to eat at BOG even though I was very much looking forward to it. We will continue to try and hopefully I'll get to eat there one day.

My DD is also a picky eater due to sensory issues. But she will definitely eat both the grilled chicken and the steak on this menu and it's highly likely she would eat the meatloaf. When I looked at this menu, I couldn't see why anyone would have an issue with it. Yes, they don't have the standard chicken nuggets option, but honestly the chicken nuggets on the WDW kids' menus are disgusting. My DD likes chicken nuggets but she won't eat the kids' menu ones at WDW. This past trip, there were a couple times she asked for chicken nuggets, but only when they had the breast meat chicken tenders on the adult menu. We weren't doing the DDP so I happily purchased the adult meal for her.

Up until our trip in May, my DD would only eaten the grilled chicken on this menu, but some Disney magic occurred for us too. We had an ADR for lunch at LeCellier and she announced before the trip that she was going to eat steak there. I was skeptical because I've been trying to get her to eat steak (or any beef) for years and she's refused. She would skip a meal rather than eat beef. But there at LeCellier, she ordered the steak on the kids' menu and ate every last bite. Since then, I've been able to get her to eat steak, pot roast, and ground beef with no issue. She does like turkey and now that she's eating ground beef, I think she'll go for the ground turkey meatloaf.
