    Hi! We gave purchased 4 QSD plans-2 adults and 2 kid 10 & 12 yrs old. My son is picky: if I order from the children's' menu, does he get another/extra side option (to compensate the cost difference of meal plans 9 and under vs 10 and over)?

    Hi Julia! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Are you SO excited to be heading to the Walt Disney World Resort soon? You and your family are going to have so much fun and eat some tasty food along the way!

    I love the Disney dining plans! Having our meals and snacks paid for in advance takes a lot of stress out of budgeting for our vacations. I think you will really enjoy how convenient it is. I know what it is like to have a picky eater in the family ... both of my kiddos are very picky! It can be challenging to find things on the menu that they will enjoy sometimes, but we have always found a lot of variety on the menus at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you choose to order off the Kid's Menu for your son, the exchange most likely won't grant you any additional items. Even though the children's meal selection may not cost as much as an adult meal, it would still count as the entire meal. I know this can seem frustrating, but it would also be a bummer to order an adult meal for the better value and have your son not eat it! Better to lose a little of the value on the meal and have something your son will eat!

    I recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your visit. You can order ahead at many Quick-Service locations, pay with your Quick-Service meal entitlements, then just pick-up at the designated window for Mobile Ordering when you arrive. It's so easy and a huge time-saver!

    Enjoy your trip, Julia! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
