    Hi Moms and Dads! Planning a trip with my wife and 5-year-old and we got the regular dining plan. At casual restaurants, my child is restricted to the children's menu, correct? But is there any difference between an adult and child quick serve meal?

    Hi, Chad!  Children ages 3-9 are entitled to an option from the children's menu when they are on the Disney Dining Plan.  This goes for all restaurants, whether they are quick service (counter style restaurants) or table service meals.  

    The children's menus at quick service dining locations typically include items that are kid friendly.  In many cases, you'll find macaroni and cheese, burgers, chicken nuggets - the things kids are familiar with and usually enjoy.

    Adult menus at quick service locations tend to be more extensive.  In addition to the typical burgers and chicken, you'll also find options that include seafood, salads, and even a steak in some locations (the ABC Commissary at Disney's Hollywood Studios has a New York Strip Steak on their counter service menu).  

    I hope you find options that make the whole family happy!
