    On our last visit, both of my children were young enough to order from the children's menu. On our next visit, they will be 11 and 12. Can they eat off the kids' menu but pay adult price? We will be on Delux Dining.

    Hi LeeAnn!

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    That's a great question! Thanks for choosing to visit the Moms Panel to ask it!

    You absolutely can elect to have your children order from the children's menu, even though you've paid an adult price for them to dine. Often, if you inquire with your server about this, the chefs at your table service restaurant will create an adult-sized portion of the kids' meal, so that your "pickier eater" can enjoy the foods they'd like but at a slightly heartier portion size than the usual kids' meal. Be sure to confirm with your server that your children have paid adult meal price on your dining plan, so that they will still be offered the appropriate beverage size, appetizer and dessert offerings that you are entitled to receive!

    Enjoy the Deluxe Dining Plan! Be sure to remember to keep up with your Snack Credits by indulging now and then! Some favourites I highly recommend include: The Carrot Cake Cookie at Writer's Stop in Hollywood Studios, Kaki Gori Japanese Shaved Ice at Epcot, the infamous Dole Whip at Aloha Isle in Magic Kingdom's Adventureland, and the BEST soft ice cream from the Anandapur Ice Cream Truck in the Asia side of Animal Kingdom ... to name but a few of my favourite indulgences ;)

    Wishing you a simply Magical time on your Walt Disney World vacation LeeAnn!
