    We are planning on doing some Signature Dining on our trip this year. Likely in France and the Yachtsman the trouble being my eleven year-old likely won't want what's served in the courses. Can she partake from the kids menu?

    Hi Marcee!

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with another great question!

    Hooray for signature dining! My family also enjoys a few signature dining experiences on each trip. Although each restaurant's procedures could vary slightly, I will say that in our experience, since our girls have food allergies, they have been able to order off the children's menu or they have selected a salad and an appetizer at signature restaurants. Just speak with the Cast Member who serves you to discuss the possibilities at the specific restaurant. Know that you may still be charged an adult price for her, particularly at character dining experiences, family style dining locations, and Be Our Guest Restaurant

    Be sure to make advanced dining reservations if you have not done so already. Also pay attention to the dining updates as additional restaurant re-openings may be announced. We were thrilled to learn that 'Ohana is reopening and have booked a dinner reservation for our upcoming trip in July. This is our favorite restaurant! We have loved being able to view the Happily Ever After fireworks from the restaurant while enjoying our dinner.

    It might also help if you review the menus with your daughter prior to arrival. We always review the menus so that everybody has an idea of what they would like to eat when we get to a restaurant. Knowing what our choices are helps to expedite the ordering process. And, if the girls have questions for the chef, they can ask those soon after we arrive. To review the menus, just check the home page of each restaurant and click on the link to View Menu.

    Marcee, it sounds like you have done some excellent planning! I wish I had a more definitive answer for you, but, in my experience, Cast Members have allowed us some flexibility when possible. Keep up the planning. Looking at your arrival date, you should be packing soon!

    Magic and memories,
