    My sons ages 14 and 10 eat light. Instead of dining plan this year, we are using DVC and eating in at times. I have made reservations at places like California grill and Coral reef. Can boys just order off children's menu or even appetizers for their meal

    Hi Sandy,

    My family sometimes eat at our Disney Vacation Club resort as well.  The last trip, we even made bacon and eggs which was a big hit with the kids and a great way to start the day!  For dinner, we love spaghetti and garlic bread with chocolate chip cookies.  This will allow you to spend quality time in the beautiful villa as well.  Technically your boys are older than nine and should be ordering off the adult menu.  My children whose ages are 8, 11, and 14 can be very picky eaters, and have all ordered off the children's menu at meal time.  I find that there really isn't enough food for my 14 year old son.  He has become more adventurous in his ordering but has been known to get an adult sized portion of macaroni and cheese or pasta.  Talk with your server for the options best for your sons.  You really won't have any problems with your 10 year old.  Your boys could order several appetizers as a meal as well and share them.  Again just let your server know.  You will have such wonderful meals at the California Grill and the Coral Reef Restaurant.  Make sure you step out onto the balcony at the California Grill to get a wonderful view of the Magic Kingdom.  Also request a table by the fish tank at the Coral Reef.  Your boys will just love watching all the fish and turtles!  Have a magical vacation, Sandy!
