    We would like to get the dining plan for our nieces, but they are very picky eaters. They are 10 and 11 and really only eat mac and cheese and nuggets. Do we have to pay the adult price for them even if they won't eat the adult food? Thanks

    Hi Kristin!

    Unfortunately the answer is "yes".  I realize it's not the best situation, which is why I'm not a fan of the Disney Dining Plan for picky eaters or for children who really don't eat very much! 

    To determine if the Dining Plan is a good investment for your family, I recommend visiting the independent website AllEars.Net.  There you can find all of the menus for the Table Service and Quick Service restaurants at Walt Disney World, including prices.  Since you know what each member of your family might order, you can figure out how much it would cost to eat every day at Walt Disney World and compare that to the price of a Dining Plan.  I will say that some guests save a lot of money by being on a plan, but some save only a little, and some actually spend more!

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
