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

    We will be staying at disney world come september. I am a senior of 74 years old and I don't eat large portions of food in the dining rooms. Am I able to order from the Kids menu?

    Hello, Tom and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Tom, I love dining around the Walt Disney World Resort and am happy to help you cook up a delicious vacation. The answer to your question depends upon the dining location you have chosen, so let's talk about possible situations. 

    First, you are welcome to order from the kids' menu at any Quick Service dining location. At the Disney Resorts Collection hotels, inside the theme parks and at Disney Springs, you'll find a plethora of options that are considered Quick Service. One of my favorites is located at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme ParkSatu'li Canteen. While you can't make reservations at Quick Service locations, many do accept Mobile Orders

    Tom, you also have some flexibility at the more traditional Table Service restaurants. While officially the kids' menu at these locations is for Mouseketeers ages 3-9 years, I have found that the Cast Members are willing to let you order what fits your appetite. In addition to looking at the kids' menus, you may want to consider the appetizer menu as well. For example, over at Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen located inside Magic Kingdom Park you'll see salad and soup options that might be a great stand alone meal! 

    Finally, Tom there are a few restaurants that will NOT permit ordering from the kids' menu as these are fixed price experiences. For example, Hollywood & Vine located at Disney's Hollywood Studios offers shared starters with a choice of individual entrees AND a modified character experience. At restaurants that are all-you-care to eat or classified as family style or prix fixe, you will need to pay the full adult price. Currently, the following restaurants would fall into this category (please note that prior to your trip this list may change):
    -Biergarten Restaurant
    -Chef Mickey's
    -The Crystal Palace
    -Garden Grill Restaurant
    -Hollywood & Vine
    -Liberty Tree Tavern
    -Topolino's Terrace- Flavors of the Riviera
    -Cape May Cafe

    Tom, I hope this information is helpful as you're looking ahead to your September vacation. If you have additional questions, I hope you'll come back and see your new friends hEAR at planDisney! 

    Wishing you a trip that is sweet, savory and has you thirsty for more!
