    With kids menu. How do buffets work? Do the children eat from the same buffet as the adults? I only ask because I saw at Chef Mickey's it said something about children under nine could have chicken nuggets? Is this in addition to buffet?

    Hi, Judith and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    There are so many wonderful all-you-care-to-eat dining experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort. It's a great option for families especially when it includes a visit from some of your favorite Disney Friends! When we plan a buffet-style meal, we normally can eat light for the rest of the day, which allows us the opportunity to enjoy some of our favorite snacks around the parks including Mickey bars, churros and a soft-serve DOLE WHIP!

    Judith, there will be a variety of food offerings available at restaurants like Chef Mickey's including a section with items such as macaroni and cheese and chicken nuggets that are kid-friendly! These will be out with the rest of the items so there is no need to place a special order. When you are deciding which all-you-care-to-eat venues to experience, you'll want to check the "Kids' Offering" for each menu so you know what to expect especially if you have picky eaters. My husband loves macaroni and cheese just as much as my son so he also can't resist a serving or two when it's available on a buffet!  

    Thank you for sending in your dining question, Judith! We hope you'll swing back by to see us if we can assist you further with your magical plans.

    Have a wonderful day!
