    Hi, I’m so excited to be coming to DisneyWorld in November this year. My question is that my daughter will be 11, will she be allowed to eat from the children’s menu as she would not eat from the adults, I have looked at the menus and they state up to 9.

    Hi Eunice!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney and dropping us your question about dining at the Walt Disney World Resort!  There are so many dining options for appetites of all sizes throughout the parks and resorts.  For those who enjoy buffets, to those who like tapas-style meals, you can find a bit of everything during your vacation!

    Guests who have dining reservations at any of the Walt Disney World Restaurants can order from both the adult and child menus.  Within my party, we have those who are unable to enjoy adult portion meals, and we have been able to order from the kid's menu without issue at any of the dining locations. The one exception to this is when dining at a buffet location. When dining at a buffet-style restaurant, guests who are 10 years old and above will be charged the adult pricing, regardless of the amount consumed during the meal.  Should your daughter find that she prefers an item on the kid's menu, you can also ask a Cast Member if she can get an adult-size portion of a kid's menu item. You will find that the restaurants are able to accommodate most dining requests and will work with you on making sure your daughter enjoys her dining experience.

    Holiday Planning Tip:  Seeing that you will be visiting during the Holiday season, make sure that you check out the four theme parks and their Holiday decorations. Each theme park boasts its own unique Christmas Tree, and there are special treats within the parks that celebrate the holidays!  Be sure to subscribe to the Disney Parks Blog for upcoming holiday treats and eats!

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
