    I have been checking out the kids menus at the table service restaurants at Disney. All of the kids menus are pretty much the same. Is there any way we can get an adult menu item in a kid portion and have it included in the dining plan?

    Unfortunately not. The Disney Dining Plan is quite strict on this point: Children ages 3-9 on the Dining Plan must order from the children's menu whenever there is one available.

    While you are right that there are some perennial children's favorites do appear on many of the children's menus at WDW. It's easy to find pizza, pasta, chicken fingers, hot dogs, and PB&J almost anywhere. But if your child is more adventurous than that, there are plenty of other options. First off, you should know that at any buffet-style meal, your child is welcome to eat from anywhere on the buffet line. Many other restaurants have unique children's choices as well.

    For example, in the parks:

    - Yak & Yeti: Egg roll, vegetable lo mein
    - 50's Prime Time Cafe: Meatloaf, grilled fish
    - Brown Derby: Grilled chicken breast
    - Sunshine Seasons: Sweet and Sour chicken
    - Nine Dragons: Pork Dumplings
    - Restaurant Marrakesh: Vegetable Cous Cous
    - Rose & Crown: Shepherd's Pie, Bangers and Mash
    - Liberty Tree Tavern: Sliced Turkey

    There are many more off-the-beaten-track options in the resorts too.  And, of course, you are always welcome to purchase additional items from the menu to supplement your child's meal.
