    my child will be 10 when we arrive in September. Her ticket for parks is for 10+. We purchased the dining plan as we always do but now that she is 10 will she be ordering from adult menu?

    Dear Robin,

    Thank you so much for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about the Disney Dining Plan!

    Yes, children 10 years old and up are considered adults at the Walt Disney World Resort both for theme park tickets and also for the Disney Dining Plan. Your daughter will be able to order off of the adult menu for her restaurant choices. If she has more of a child's palate and she prefers to order off of the kid's menu, she can also choose to do that instead. A third option is that many Table-Service restaurants are willing to make an adult-sized portion of a kid's meal, if she is more hungry one meal.

    Hope that helps with your question!

    Have a magical time planning!
