The Disney Parks are becoming more accommodating for vegetarians, according to Minnie Mom, Janine. While I ate a couple of yummy grilled vegetable sandwiches myself, it's much harder to find meals for a vegetarian child at WDW. Tink was 18 months old on our last WDW trip and simply isn't interested in meat. I can occasionally get her to eat a couple of fish sticks and very recently a few morsels of chicken, but that's about it. She also rarely eats pizza or peanut butter & jelly, so those are out. Tink's only interest in french fries is as a device to play in a cup of ketchup.

LESSONS LEARNED: My husband couldn't join us on this trip and since I was carrying most of Tink's gear, I was trying to travel as light as possible. Yes, my parents would have been happy to carry something for me, but it's a hassle to carry multiple bags and my stroller has very little storage space. In retrospect, I wish I had a small insulated lunchbox and carried cheese sticks, milk, and maybe some other food. I still wouldn't want to carry much but it would have been handy to have a place to keep things cool. I also think I probably should have skipped out on a couple of table service dinners with the group and just taken Tink and I somewhere simpler. By that time of day, we were both tired. Thankfully, my mom enjoys feeding Tink since she doesn't get to see her often.
Even with the challenge of feeding my picky little girl, we had a wonderful time and hated to leave.
