    If a 10-year old in the Disney Dining Plan (considered an adult by Disney) would like to eat something from the children’s menu, is he allowed to get a bigger portion of that item since he is paying an adult price under his plan?

    Howdy Shakira!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love chatting about dining!  When I get a “Rumbly in my Tumbly” at the Walt Disney World Resort, there is always something yummy “Just Around the Riverbend!”  Let’s dig into your question!

    My guys love to eat, and during their growing years, their appetite can grow!  Currently, the different Disney Dining Plans have been placed on pause.  There are lots of dining options and meals priced for ages 3-9 and 10 and up.  If your Mouseketeer wants something from the kid's menu at a quick-service or table-service, then Hakuna Matata, No Worries!  The portions on the kid's menu are slightly smaller, but if your adventurer would prefer a larger meal, most restaurants offer an adult version of most kid's meals.  If you decide to purchase the larger adult meal, then you would pay the adult price.  If the table-service is family-style or a set prix fixe menu, all Mouseketeers will pay the fee that correlates to their age bracket.  I am sure your Mouseketeer will find the perfect meal to satisfy his “Rumbly in his Tumbly” at the restaurant that you choose.  

    The Walt Disney World Resort is doing a fantastic job keeping guests safe.  To ensure that guests remain socially distanced and there is a limited person to person contact, all guests are strongly encouraged to use the Mobile Food Order option on your My Disney Experience.  I love the Mobile Food Ordering option.  With Mobile Food Ordering, you will be able to place your order from your smartphone and relax until your meal is ready.  To scan through all the quick-services, you might want to check out the “Know Before You Go” site to find locations and food options that would work perfectly for your party.  

    In just a couple of days, you will be off to “Neverland!”  I know you are excited!  There are tons of exciting things to do and see at the Walt Disney World Resort right now!  The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts will be in full swing during the first few days of your visit!  I love this festival!  The “Step into” art is so much fun for all ages!  The Taste of EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is perfect for everyone!

    If you have any questions before or while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort, please come back to planDisney, Shakira!  We look forward to helping you with all your planning questions!  When you see Mickey and his pals, please wave hi from all of us at planDisney!

    See Ya Real Soon,
