    We're taking our first trip to Disney in April and we decided to go with the dining plan. My daughter is 10 so she is considered an adult for the dining plan. She is not a big eater and I was wondering if she is able to order from the kids menu? Thanks!

    We have run into the same issue with my daughters over the years.  The short answer to your question is yes; your daughter is more than welcome to order from the children's menu.  No matter which menu she orders from, though, do keep in mind that one table service credit will be deducted from her entitlements at sit-down restaurants.  So while you may not be getting the best value for your meal entitlement, your daughter will be permitted to order from the standard offerings available to younger guests.  You might consider using the opportunity to encourage your daughter to expand her eating horizons.  Often times, Disney chefs are able to "modify" the meals a bit, so as to please the palates of less adventurous eaters.  They might be able to leave off sauces, spices, or other ingredients to make an entree more appetizing to younger guests.  Just something to consider.  Happy dining!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
