    What is a Mickey check meal? I see it on some of the menus? If on the dining plan does my 9 year old have to get that?

    Hi Dena!

    That is an excellent question!  The Mickey Check (Mouse ear symbol with a check through it) is an icon used on menus at various locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort for kids' meals and other items that meet Disney Nutrition Guidelines.  As a mom, I like to let my boys have fun and splurge within reason when eating on our Disney vacations.  However, I know that its also important to make sure they are getting the proper nutrition to keep them fueled up to keep up with me at Disney World - ha! 

    You can also find food products with the Mickey Check in grocery stores nationwide.  For more information, go to .

    Your 9-year old will not be limited to the items with the Mickey Check symbol.  It just makes it easier to spot nutritious choices.

    Please feel free to visit us with all of your planning questions.  We're hEAR to help!

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-)  Allison
