    We are finally coming back to Disney in November!!! I am having gastric bypass surgery in 3 weeks so I literally will only be able to eat about a cup of food at each sitting. Does the Disney dining plan allow for a discount for me?

    Welcome to planDisney, Beth! I am so glad you came here to ask your questions about your November trip! 

    Congratulations on making the brave decision to have gastric bypass surgery! It is not an easy decision, I had mine nearly 17 years ago. 

    At this time, the Disney Dining Plan is not available for purchase. But, even if it returns, I would not recommend it for you. It is WAY easier to simply share a meal with someone in your family, or order just an appetizer for your meal. 

    At any quick service restaurant, you will be able to order a kid’s meal, or split a meal. Be sure you get some good protein at your meals! A few of my best recommendations would be the Orinoco Ida’s Cachapas at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom, and the kid’s Chopped Wood-Grilled Chicken Bowl at Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom. 

    Even all these years later, I can’t even make a dent in an “actual” meal, so my family is really great about sharing with me! One last favorite for sharing is Flame Tree Barbeque in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The meals are HUGE and have lots of protein! 

    I would love to hear from you again if you have more questions while planning your magical Walt Disney World vacation. I wish you the best of luck with your weight loss journey!

    Happy Planning,
