    Ok, I keep reading differing statements on the dining plan for kids! Do kiddos have to order from children's menu or not?

    Hi, Dennis!

    The answer is IT DEPENDS! When on the Disney Dining Plan, when ordering at a Quick Service location (ordering at a counter, "fast food" locations), kids can order either a Kids Meal or choose an adult entrée, drink, and dessert. Quick Service credits are NOT tracked between adults and children, so order from whichever menu you wish.

    When on the Disney Dining Plan and using Table Service credits (think sit down with a menu) then kids must order from a Child Menu when available.  If at a buffet or family style location, kids can eat whatever they desire! (And adults are welcome to indulge in the kids area on the buffet - I always head straight for the mac n cheese!)

    With so much flexibility, you will find the Disney Dining Plan very easy to use and very easy to find something tasty to eat whether you are an adult or child. I hope this clarifies the great Disney Dining Plan mystery! If you have any other questions or information you need clarified, just let us know!
