    Can adults order from the children's menu at table service restaurants? I am a senior citizen with a small appetite and would like to have a smaller portion of the entree so that can enjoy some dessert.

    ChEARs Alan,

    Welcome to the table at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love that you are pre-planning your meals for your visit. Since we are a bunch of planners, you are in good company!

    My husband is a grazer, and he tends to avoid large meals when we are in the Parks, so there have been plenty of times that he’s looked to the kids menu for a smaller-sized meal. Thankfully, Walt Disney World Resort is happy to have anyone order off of the kids menu, regardless of age! (Make sure to check with your Server at your dining location - there could be an exception). If you are planning on using the Disney Dining Plan, you will still be charged the adult price (since you are over the age of 10!), but are free to pick from whichever menu you desire. You also can discuss with your server the possibility of smaller portions off of the adult menu. The fantastic Disney Chefs are very accommodating of special dietary needs.

    While I love the kids dining options across the Resort, know that there are quite a few adult choices that lean to the lighter side of things. We routinely order fish dishes at dinner, because they are healthy and light. I love the Grilled Salmon at Columbia Harbour House, and one of my favorite breakfasts is at Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. The Enriching Grains and Fruit (with a coconut-milk yogurt!) is delicious, and not heavy at all.

    Alan, one of my fellow panelists recently answered a question about healthy dining options, and her suggestions are excellent! I second her Satu’li Canteen recommendations, we make it a point to eat there every time we visit. Their bowls are delicious and perfectly proportioned.

    If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I wish you an appetizing and magical vacation!
