I absolutely LOVE the kid's menu here. Nuggets are everywhere. Enough already. My kids ages 3-11 eat fish, meatloaf, pork, seafood, salads etc.. Nuggets are once in a while in our house and I am sick of them serving it everywhere. BOG is an upscale location and the food reflects that. It isn't like they are offering liver and brussel sprouts. These are common foods most kids would eat if mom was serving it to them.

And if "no nugget" menu means less families waiting in line than even better!

I'm glad you like the menu. However, I don't want this thread to turn into a debate over chicken nuggets. I just want it to be a resource for people to find information about the restaurant and post questions they may have. So I'm going to respectfully request that this be the last comment on the subject

I was just thinking that it might be good to have a post with a photo of each dish there. For now, if you go to the post with reviews, I believe Disney Food Blog's review has photos of most if not all the things on the menu.

No offense, but this needs to go both ways. One person was encouraged & given resources to complain about the menu & another was admonished for praising it. I don't have an opinion either way, because I no longer have a little one. I just don't feel one persons opinion is more relevant than another.

I am very sorry if I gave the impression that either of the opinions was more valuable than the other. That's not what I was trying to do. I just saw the potential for it to turn into a debate and possibly get closed, and that's not my intention for this thread. I have my own opinions on that topic but am keeping them to myself for that reason. Suzanne74, the address I posted for complaints is also good for praise and I hope you'll also let Disney know what you think about the menu. Again, I apologize if I gave the wrong idea. I'd just like to keep this thread from getting out of hand

ETA: Here is what I can gather with my limited knowledge. From looking at the menus, it seems like at both lunch and dinner your child would have the choice of drink, entree, and desserts on the menu. It does not seem to be a situation where you can substitute a dessert for one of the sides; it's included as a separate item. Whatever sides are listed are counted as part of the entree. So for instance, at lunch he or she could get:

-Carved turkey sandwich with sweet potato wedges and peach applesauce
-Chocolate milk
-Strawberry cream cheese cupcake

Or at dinner:

-Grilled steak served with seasonal vegetables
-Apple juice
-Chocolate cream puff

Does that make sense?

Thank you for this information it does make sense.

Does anyone have experience using the kiosks to order kids' meals? Were you given the option to substitute sides? Given the choice, my 4-year-old would choose the Mahi Mahi, but would rather have the sweet potatoes and green beans with it. I know when we ordered from the kiosks at the Contemporary QS, we had tons of options. I'm assuming this is the same?

I haven't ordered kids' meals on the kiosk, but I'm guessing it's not a situation where it asks you if you want to substitute. Hopefully someone who's done it can weigh in. If you have any concerns about doing it, you can ask to place your order with the cashier and make the substitutions that way.

We ate both lunch and dinner at BOG on our trip 3 weeks ago. My DD9 said this was her favorite place we ate at the week we were there . She ordered the kids meatloaf for both meals, however, I don't recall seeing any options for kids desserts with the CS lunch.

At dinner, when it is TS the cupcakes or cream puffs were available as a dessert for kids.

Perhaps someone else has another experience, but I did not see a way to change or amend the options on the kiosk when ordering. I was by myself with DD9, DS4 and DD2, so I was a little frazzled when ordering the CS lunch.

We were on DDP for both meals

I agree. I can't believe that families couldn't find something their child would eat on these menus. Way to go Disney for the great menu choices! I wouldn't call these "healthy alternatives" like some are calling them. But rather a normal everyday meal in our house.

I think it's a shame that children these days can't leave the house and eat a decent meal. In fact I'm the mom complaining when the menu is full of crappy unhealthy foods everywhere. (Nuggets. Fries. Hot dogs.) Garbage.

Most times I struggle to find something nutritious for my kids and it's rarely found on the kids menus so we end up ordering a full adult meal for them instead. (Chicken fish etc with dare I say it veggies and not fries lol)

Our family is very much looking forward to this restaurant.
