    So my husband and I are both extremely PICKY eaters. If we pay the adult price can we eat something off the kids menu or how does that work?

    Hey there, Stephanie. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question! I noticed that you have a trip planned to the most magical place on earth in September. It's such a great time to visit, you are going to have so much fun. 

    One thing that I love about vacationing at Walt Disney World is how accommodating they are to the wants and needs of all Guests, especially when it comes to dining. On the standard menu, at most restaurants, I think you will be impressed with the wide variety of options that will please even the pickiest of eaters, like yourself. At all of the Quick Service dining locations scattered about Walt Disney World, you are able to order any menu item you'd like and this includes anything off of the kids' menu with no trouble at all. Actually, kids' menus at Walt Disney World are an excellent value for your wallet. Most meals include an entree, a few side items like applesauce and a mandarin which can be saved for snacks later and a small beverage. At Table Service Restaurants kids' meals are reserved for people ages 9 and under. It's really going to be up to your server on whether or not they are going to enforce this rule. I will say, I've never seen a request to order off the kids' menu be denied - but it has happened so you should be aware. If your request for a kids' meal isn't granted, I would ask if you could speak to the Chef. He or She will come out and together you guys can come up with a meal that will please your taste buds. Chefs come out all of the time to talk to Guests about dietary restrictions and needs so don't feel hesitant to ask. I've also had good luck combining two meals into one. A few months ago, when I was dining at The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park, I really wanted a salad with a protein on it. It wasn't a menu option but I asked if I could order the appetizer wedge salad and add the grilled chicken strips from the kids' menu for my entree. It wasn't a problem at all for the server to do this for me. So, it's best to just ask for exactly what you would like and go from there. At restaurants where it is all-you-care-to-enjoy, no matter what you are served you will be charged the adult price. But because it is all-you-care-to-enjoy, the servers here will be able to accommodate your requests more easily. I enjoyed breakfast at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera not too long ago and while I ordered the quiche off of the adult menu, I also asked for the Mickey and Minnie waffle dippers off of the kids' menu as a side and of course, this was not a problem. 

    So I'd say, for the most part, you are going to be able to order pretty much anything you'd like to eat during your vacation. On the off chance that you aren't able to order off of the kids' menu specifically just talk to the Chef and they will work something out for you. 

    Stephanie, I hope this helps! If you have any other questions before your trip or need some dining recommendations, please come back and ask me

    Happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
