    Kimberly from NJ Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    When dining at a restaurant with a pre fixe menu, does everyone get charged for the meal? My son, has a feeding tube and does not eat but will accompany our group during dinner. Will he still be charged even though he will not eat?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Kimberly.

    I bet you’re feeling extra holly-jolly about traveling to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most magical time of year. You must have made Santa’s nice list, because that’s the best present you could hope to find under the tree!

    Unlike traditional table-service dining locations at Walt Disney World Resort, restaurants with prix fixe menus typically require all Guests to participate in the meal and charge for each seated Guest. However, due to your circumstances, I suggest you reach out to the Special Diets team by sending an email to and explaining your situation. They’ll be able to assist you with this specific request and answer any questions you have. You may also want to contact the Disability Services team at to see if they have additional information that would be helpful for you to know.

    Remember to include your son in the number of Guests when making dining reservations for your trip. That helps the restaurant better prepare for your arrival.

    Kimberly, if you think of anything else we can help you with during these last few weeks of planning, don’t hesitate to stop back by. Enjoy making memories with your son!

    Until next time,
