Walt Disney World
is adding several new dishes to the kids' menus at four Magic Kingdom
. Until now, the menus have been fairly standard burgers, chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese options, but some of the new foods are a little more "grown-up."
At Tony's Town Square
, an Italian restaurant at the park's entrance, one of the new dishes is a steak "spiedini" served with roasted sweet potato fries and fresh fruit. A spiedini is an Italian word for cubes of meat cooked on a skewer. Kids can also choose a grilled cheese sandwich on multigrain bread that will be served in slices for dipping in a tomato sauce.
Hoping to appeal to kids' love of BBQ sauce, Liberty Tree Tavern
will offer a flatbread pizza topped with barbecued chicken and pineapple, served with crisp veggies and apples. The other new choice here is similar to the adult offerings - oven roasted turkey served with mashed potatoes, vegetables and fruit.
Kids who dine in the castle at Cinderella's Royal Table
have three new options: a chicken drumette with sides of rice and broccolini, grilled beef skewers with mashed potatoes and corn, and a chicken pot pie with biscuit crust.
At The Plaza Restaurant
, kids now have a choice of grilled chicken slices and cous cous served with a fruit skewer.
Guests have long taken Disney to task over their lack of choices for children who are more adventurous eaters, and it seems the theme park is at least making an attempt to satisfy these guests.
