    If we are paying for meals for our kids (12 & 10) who are still petite and not big eaters, can we order kids meals for them or do they really restrict them to 3-9 y.o. Thanks!

    The answer is slightly more complicated if you're on the dining plan, but if you're paying out of pocket for your meals, then anyone can order anything regardless of their age. My 11-year-old daughter now orders about half the time from the kids menu and half from the adult menu depending on how hungry she is and what she's in the mood for. We've never been questioned on this.

    At one recent meal at the Sci-Fi Dine-In, my 8-year-old daughter ordered an adult meal and my 60+ year old mother ordered a kids meal. Our server didn't bat an eyelash and brought everyone the food that they ordered with no problems at all.

    Have your kids eat what they want and have a great trip!
