    We will be on the Regular Disney Dining Plan. We are vegan and are happy that we have plenty to choose from on the adult menus but the children's menus don't have many options. Will restaurants let our kids order from adult menus?

    Hello Dana!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an excellent question!

    I am sure you will enjoy using your Disney Dining Plan. This is the best way to turn your visit into an all-inclusive experience. There simply is no better feeling than arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort knowing all your dining is already paid for.

    As a Guest who enjoys ordering plant-based meals, I must agree with you that there are several dining locations that currently offer delicious vegan options. The Special Diets team is going above and beyond to make sure all Guests are accommodated and really feel included while on vacation. I always tell friends and family that the Walt Disney World Resort is one of the few destinations in the world where a group of people with different dietary needs, styles or allergies can all sit together for a meal at one place.

    When using a Disney Dining Plan, children must order from a children’s menu where available. It is currently not possible to use children’s credits to redeem adult meals, however, since several dining locations offer plant-based options, I highly recommend talking to your server upon arriving at your dining destination. Let them know your family is vegan and they will do their best to make accommodations. There was a time when my daughter was very picky and every single option on the menus did not seem to appeal to her. Even on a Disney Dining Plan we were always able to check for substitutions or adaptations. Please note these are not guaranteed, but it is my personal experience that Cast Members will do all within their reach to accommodate you.

    Moms Panel tip: I definitely think it would be interesting to contact the Special Diets team at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com prior to your vacation. They will be happy to help you navigate the dining process and provide the best options for your vegan family, including your children. Also, always note that you are vegan while making dining reservations.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Dana. Please stop by real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
