    Hi! Love the panel! Heading to World soon with differently abled DD20 who doesn't eat much. Not on dining plan. I know if we were on DDP she would have to order adult meal, but we are paying cash this trip. Can she order off Children's menu?

    Hi Mary,

    Your daughter can absolutely order off of the child's menu at quick service locations.  At table service venues, while you can generally order off of the menu, the servers will usually bring an adult sized portion and charge you accordingly.  At least that has been my experience. 

    If she is a light eater, I recommend ordering an appetizer or salad as an entree.  They are usually less expensive than a full meal and can be quite filling.

    Hope this helps.  Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
