    My kids are ten- years old. Are they eligible to order adult meals for the meal plan or do they have to order children's meals?

    Hi, Crystal!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Food is a huge part of any visit to Walt Disney World Resort. My family plans entire days around our restaurant reservations.

    In the eyes of Disney Parks dining, children who are ten years and older are considered "adults." Your kids will be able to eat adult meals. Or they can choose a children's meal and get a larger portion size. I think the biggest detail that's worth knowing is If you have reservations at a buffet-style restaurant, your kids will be charged as adults... Even if they decide they eat a kid-sized portion.

    Let me know if you have any additional questions as you get closer to your unforgettable vacation!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
