    Coming in the Fall for free dining. My son will be 9 but I am concerned about the kids meals being too small to fill him up. Can I pay to upgrade his meal plan only to adult meals? Do I have to upgrade his park tickets too?

    Hello Ken! If you were to indicate on your reservation that your son will be 10 at the time of your vacation, he will be eligible for the adult dining plan.  However, that also means he will be charged for an adult park ticket.  We have always found the food on the dining plan to be plenty, even for the kids.  If you find it isn't enough for your child, you could always pay out of pocket to supplement here and there.  One thing to keep in mind, if you are dining at a table service meal, many are buffets or family style where he'll be able to eat as much as he desires.  Have a super vacation!
