    When paying cash, can an adult order from the childs menu? I am a senior and don't require a large meal.

    Hi Brenda,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can certainly understand your concern if you are unable to eat an adult-size portion. Although it is up to the discretion of each dining location, I have been allowed to order a kids' menu item at Quick-Service and Table-Service restaurants when paying out-of-pocket. Because I love to order an appetizer and sometimes share a dessert, I often prefer to order a kids' menu item for my entree. At buffet and all-you-care-to-enjoy dining locations, you will be charged the adult price. 

    I hope this information is 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, Brenda!

    Bon Appétit,
