    Hi! We are planning a trip to WDW for our daughter’s 8th birthday this December. My husband, daughter, and myself are all Vegan. Will my 8 y/o daughter be able to order a vegan meal using the Disney Dining Plan or only order off of the kids menu? Thanks!

    Hiya, Kathryn, and welcome to planDisney! If there's one thing I can talk about all day, it's the incredible food at Walt Disney World Resort! I bet your family is so excited to celebrate your daughter's birthday during your vacation this December! 

    Thank you for letting me know that you and your family are vegan. When you're communicating with Cast Members and servers at dining locations during your vacation, you'll definitely want to let them know that you're vegan, and see if they have any special vegan menu items at their restaurant. Often, you'll see vegan menu items listed on the restaurant menu, but other times, you'll need to communicate your preferences in person with a Cast Member. Cast Members at restaurants are amazingly helpful, and they're always willing to go the extra mile to ensure your dietary needs are met.

    I reached out to a helpful Cast Member, and found that your daughter's dining plan options will differ a bit based on the dining location. When using a dining plan, kids should order off the Kids Menu whenever possible, and with new and different substitutions for dietary restrictions available at various dining locations, you'll want to see if your server can help with your daughter's meal selection. I did a bit of a deep dive on this, and found that there has never been a better time to order vegan food at Walt Disney World Resort! Here are a few options for your sweet family:

    Kathryn, I hope this information is helpful as you continue to plan for your vacation. Please stop back by planDisney with any other questions you have about dining, theme parks, or even celebrations! Since you'll be celebrating your daughter's birthday during your vacation, be sure to stop by the front desk of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel to grab a complimentary button for each member of your party, especially the Birthday Girl! Cast Members will love the opportunity to wish her a Happy Birthday!

    Happy planning!
