    Do all parties have to order if you have reserved dining at a restaurant at Disney World? I want to try a couple of the restaurants but do not think my kids will like anything on the menu.

    Hi DAndra,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  When dining at Table-Service restaurants featuring an a la carte menu, our family of six has often shared entrees or other dishes. In fact, we have never encountered any issues when one or two of the children haven't ordered their own meal.

    During one vacation, my nephew was allowed to sit with us at an all-you-care-to-enjoy dining location without being charged. Since he had recently had dental surgery and wasn't allowed to eat solid foods, our server did not charge him. However, at all-you-care-to-enjoy dining locations it would be up to the discretion of the restaurant. 

    I hope this information has been helpful to you. If you have any additional questions or would like dining recommendations, please don't hesitate to reach out again. Best wishes for a magical trip!

    Bon Appétit,
