    You all are so helpful! I have made all my ADR and read what each meal entitlement gets me. However, looking at the menus provided- are there restrictions on what is included? Also-for kids menus it shows complete meals then shows separate options. Help!!!

    Hello Jill,

    Okay, okay, okay..stop stressing! You have done great in your planning for your Walt Disney World Vacation. You have succeeded in making your ADRs and you even know the adult entitlements.(Entree,dessert, non-alcoholic beverage) The kids should order off a children's menu if one is available. Yes, there are complete meals and a la carte items..no sweat!


    Lean on the experience of your Cast Member wait staff at the restaurants and counter services to assist you with fulfilling the Dining Plan menu requirements. Please believe they have seen it all, and will know how to help you stay within your Dining Plan boundaries. So, don't be afraid to ask if you can substitute a bowl of fruit for french fries. Your Cast Members will surely have an answer for you. Even though you have pre-paid for your Dining Plan, keep the option open of paying for an item here and there that maybe up and beyond what you are entitled to through the Dining Plan, especially for the children.

    Go with the flow Jill, stop looking so hard at those menus and keep some element of surprise and spontaneity in your vacation. Everything will work out just fine, it usually does for my fellow Buckeyes! Much love and magic to your and family.
