One day at DLP, food options?

We (dh, 17 yr old dd, and myself) will have one day in DLP, likely March 31st.

We are WDW veterans and already prepared for it being a different experience and hopefully one day will be enough. We are only going to one park (not sure the actual name, not Studios).

Is it too much to do a sit down meal mid-afternoon? If not, where would you eat? Dd is slightly picky, she always can find something to eat. Seafood is the hardest.

Any other tips for a one day trip?

We loved Walt’s. They have a nice variety of food and were able to accommodate the family members with food allergies.

It's called Disneyland Park.
I wouldn't do sitdown meals with a 1 day trip, as the French take their time for sitdown meals.

I love Hakuna Matata, Toad Hall (although it sometimes is closed during the week in low season).
Other places my friends enjoy: Chalet de la Marionette, Cowboy Cookout Barbecue. I am not such a fan myself, but that's more because the menu doesn't appeal to me. Market House Deli in Main Street is good for cookies and snacks.
I usually advise against Hyperion in Videopolis, but I must admit I haven't tried it in such a long time, maybe they have improved. I am adding this, because their generic hamburger place in the Studios 'Restaurant en Coulisse' was also a no-go for me, but on our last trip it was the only thing open and I was pleasantly surprised. It's still your average themepark food, but it's not as bad as it once was.

If you would do a sit down meal, I would suggest a buffet as you can control better how long you will stay. I say do Agrabah Cafe for lunch (it's not open for dinner), it has a more interesting Middle Eastern menu, but for your kid they will also have also less adventurous stuff like fries and chicken.

To add, Walts have been closed for a long time without a mention when it will re-open.

As always, advice to WDW veterans / US Park goers: Keep your food expectations low!

I highly recommend the Lucky Nugget Saloon or Cowboy Cookout! The former has the best ribs I've ever had, something that shocked me the first time I was there.
