    I have a child with down syndrome who is 12. We have already booked and got the deluxe dining plan. Will they allow her to order off of the children menu.

    Dear Diana,

    Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit to see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great planning question about your daughter!

    You've made a great choice with the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, because it gives you so much flexibility with your meals and your planning.

    With your daughter, is it that she prefers the food choices from the kids menu, or that she has a small appetite? If she prefers the kids meal foods themselves, she can order larger portions of the foods from the kids' menu at Table-Service locations. If it's more that she has a small appetite, then she can certainly just choose kids meals wherever you choose to go to eat. At Quick-Service locations, she can choose either kids meals or adult meals. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
