    Hello! Have a food allergy question...I am gluten free and in looking over the menus online I see good options for me on the kids menus for many sit down restaurants .... Is it possible to order as an adult from these menus?

    Hello Michel and thanks for dropping by planDisney! I'm so happy to welcome you here. 

    One of my favorite topics of conversation is dining around the Walt Disney World Resort, and with so many options, I know you'll find some delicious dishes! Michel, my Mom who has visited with my family on multiple occasions is both gluten and dairy free so I appreciate this question and the pre-planning that goes into dietary restrictions. 

    First, before we dive into your question, I'm happy to share that you'll find the most helpful Cast Members at dining locations around the parks and at the Disney Resort Hotels. On a few occasions when my Mom was hoping to modify a dish, the chef came out to speak with her and helped create something she could feel confident eating. So, if you are unsure, don't hesitate to ask to speak with the chef or ask if something could be modified! 

    Now, to your question about ordering from the kids' menu as an adult, the answer is maybe! If the Table-Service restaurant is a buffet, family style, or prix fixe price, it's important to note that you will be charged the adult pricing regardless of the choices you eat. However, in this situation, please talk with the Cast Member about your gluten restriction so that they are able to provide alternate choices for you! For those restaurants that offer all a la carte pricing, I've had good luck in the past ordering from the kids' menu (regardless of the age of the guest) or having a kids' menu item adapted (for an increased cost) into an adult portion. I have also found that each and every Cast Member who serves or works at a dining location wants you to have the best possible experience and will help you navigate both the menu and off-menu options!

    I hope this helps as you're looking ahead to your fall visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth. I'll also be visiting during the spooky season with some of my planDisney besties and I can't wait to see Main Street, U.S.A. in its autumn attire! 

    Have a wonderful vacation,
