    We will be going to WDW in October, using the Dining plan (included free!). It says that kids 3-9 have to eat off off the kids menu. I have a picky 10 year old. Can he eat off the kids menu?

    Hi there Dawn,

    I totally understand your concern.  It is up to the discretion of the restaurants, but most locations will allow your son to order off of the children's menu even though he is using an adult plan.  Some restaurants will even bend to create a larger portion of an entree chosen from the children's menu to make the switch more economically fair.  Disney restaurants are really flexible and aim to please, so keep that in mind as your son views the menus.   If he sees something he "sorta" likes on the regular menu, don't be afraid to ask the server to modify the dish to his liking!  They do this all the time!

    Best Wishes,

    Amanda F.
