    My daughter is 10 yrs old & tube fed, we like to visit the character dining like Chef Mickeys but she doesn't eat because of the feeding tube, who would we talk to about not having to pay for her meal since she is not eating?

    Hi, Lisa!  When you make your dining reservations, I would let them know of your daughter's situation.  That at least gets it to the attention of the restaurant before you ever set foot in the door.  Once you check in at the podium, you can ask to speak with the restaurant manager and explain the situation to that person.

    In my one experience with something similar, our family was charged a nominal entertainment fee for me when I was unable to eat solid foods during a trip following abdominal surgery.  This may be at the discretion of the restaurant manager, but it definitely helps to let them know as soon as you arrive so it doesn't get overlooked.

    I hope you guys have a magical vacation!
