I think it would be are and their - instead of

is and they're

Their is easy but are is more difficult.

If What is an adjective and they the noun/subject, the verb would be don't like
and the predicate verb would be is if they didn't make it plural and then it should be are.

Because if you replaced What they don't like with The thing they don't like and then you would have is, singular, being the correct verb.

Being a predicate verb makes it more complicated. Any thoughts about the grammar and use of is versus are in these kinds of complicated sentences?

I'm not sure but I would make it plural or change the sentence and make sure there is a singular subject to go with is.
