    We have reservations for the Fantasmic Dining event at Mama Melrose's. I understand the adult pricing is $38 and children are $13. My 10-year-old daughter will most likely order from the children's menu, will she be charged as an adult?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bobby!

    Dining packages are one of my favorite ways to add something extra special to my Walt Disney World Resort vacation. With a dining package, you're guaranteed a great meal as well as reserved seating for a show or nighttime spectacular that same day. The Fantasmic! Dining Package at Disney's Hollywood Studios is one of my favorites and I also love the special dining events that pop up around the different Festivals at Epcot, like the Candlelight Processional Dining Package during the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays!

    Because your daughter is 10 years old and will have adult theme park admission, she will also need to pay the adult price when you're participating in a dining event, like the Fantasmic! Dining Package at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. If she's not sure about any of the dishes on the regular menu, ask a Cast Member if the chef can prepare a big kids' portion of something from the children's menu for her. Children 10 and over are considered adults at dining events, Character Dining experiences, and buffets or family-style meals, but other than those exceptions she is welcome to order from the kids' menu at most Table-Service and Quick-Service restaurants.

    I hope this answers your question, Bobby, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
