    We’re a couple coming for 3 weeks and considering the Dining Plan but I’m diabetic. Is it possible to swap out the desert on the plan for an appetiser instead or something with less sugar at restaurants?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, Pete. We're so glad to see you again and, of course, thrilled to hear you're planning another visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure. 

     I'm a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan. I love that this plan includes Quick-Service and Table-Service meals, so my family can enjoy on-the-go meals that get us back to our theme park adventures quickly and leisurely meals that give us a chance to relax and reflect on all the magic we're experiencing. Not to mention, the Disney Dining Plan adds flexibility and convenience to our Disney vacations. As a mom of three, I need all the flexibility and convenience I can get!

     To answer your question, yes, it's certainly possible to swap the dessert included in your brunch, lunch, or dinner Table-Service meals with an appetizer or a side. In my family's experience, we've had no trouble making dining plan substitutions for our picky eater. Given your dietary needs, I'm sure you'll experience just as much ease, if not more! When you sit down at a Table-Service restaurant, just be sure to let your Server know about your needs. I think you'll find that they're very knowledgeable and eager to share recommendations!

     I encourage you to check out the Special Dietary Requests page before your visit. There's great information there, including accommodations for dietary needs like no-sugar-added desserts.

    I hope this was helpful, Pete. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your next visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! As always, we'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
