    If a child is now 10, the child must pay as an adult for the dining plan. Can they still order off the children's menu? Very picky eater and don't mind paying, but I know she will not eat what is given as an adult.

    Hi there, Robin!

    On the DIsney Dining Plan, the adult entitlement works to purchase both adult and child meals. The converse is not the case: you cannot use a child entitlement to purchase an adult meal.

    While your 10-year-old might want the fare from the children's menu, you might want to speak to the chef at each restaurant about perhaps offering a larger portion of the child's favorites. The chefs are eager to ensure that every Guest leaves full and content, and if your 10-year-old needs more food than what the child's portion allows, that request is likely to be honored with ease.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
