    We have purchased the Disney Dining Plan and my son is 17 and a small, picky eater. While eating our table service meal, will he be able to order a Child's meal with his adult meal plan? Thanks very much.

    Hi Mary Kay,

    The Cast Members at Disney's restaurants are very accommodating.  If your son prefers to order a child's meal, there should be no problem.  Simply explain his preference and the staff will likely work to accommodate you.  Another option (that I have used with my family of picky eaters) is asking the Cast Member who serves you to modify an existing menu item to your son's specifications.  We have had no problem having things baked or grilled instead of fried, fried instead of grilled, had sauces removed, added or placed on the side and/or substituted french fries for "fancy" veggies.

    Have a magical trip!
