    Alexis from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    If someone in my group had the gastric bypass surgery and is only able to eat small amounts, would she be able to order off of the kids menu or pay the kids pricing at restaurants at the resort with a doctors note?

    Bonjour, Alexis!

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that we welcome you to planDisney! And now, we invite you to relax; let us pull up a chair as this panelist proudly presents….your answer!

    I’m thrilled to hear you and your group want to experience adventure in the great wide somewhere… somewhere being, of course, The Most Magical Place on Earth! I love visiting Walt Disney World Resort with family and friends; it’s a wonderful place to explore together and make magical memories. 

    Alexis, thanks for bringing your excellent question our way. Although it is up to the restaurant’s discretion, in my experience, Cast Members have been very accommodating to Guests in my party with dietary concerns. I recommend your Guest express their nutritional concerns to the servers at the restaurants you’re dining at. Please keep in mind that your Guest may be charged at the adult price for buffet meals, dinner shows, and character meals. 

    If your Guest with special dietary requests should desire, they can meet with the culinary team at the table service restaurants you plan to dine at. Your Guest will be able to discuss further accommodations for them.

    For instance, during my reservation at Chef Mickey's, upon checking in, we let the Cast Member at the host stand know of my friend’s special dietary requests. After being seated, the chef came out to speak to my friend about how best to accommodate him. The chef was absolutely fantastic and able to substitute some of his meal for something equally delicious that he could enjoy. I am still impressed. 

    Additionally, if your party has 4 or more allergy-friendly requests or a medically restrictive diet, please contact They request you don’t get in touch with them any sooner than 14 days before your visit, and the Special Diets team will be happy to contact you to assist you further.

    Wishing you an enchanting visit, Alexis!
