    I have a 10 year old who gets 95% of her nutrition from a feeding tube. Problem is, now that's she's 10 she falls into the Adult pricing category for character dining. How can we find out if she can be charged kids prices due to her circumstances?

    Greetings and a warm welcome to planDisney, Elizabeth.

    Thank you kindly for reaching out to planDisney, as a fellow mom of a special needs child, I feel I can empathize as a caregiver with the level of logistical planning involved above and beyond the typical level of planning. I am so happy to hear that you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort, especially during the Fall Events & Festivities and best of all you will be a part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration!

    Elizabeth, it sounds as if you have done a lot of research and I have a few friends who are in your situation, and in the past, during their visits, they consulted with Cast Members upon check-in to inquire what the best accommodation was for their child. I too have heard and seen that Guests in your predicament have been charged the child price for a meal (pending consultation with a Cast Member). Elizabeth, my word or observations are not the final words, as I am a fellow Guest myself. Beyond this, I would highly recommend that you contact the Walt Disney World Resort - Special Dietary Team at Special.Diets@DisneyWorld.com in advance of your visit to ask your specific questions and receive the final word.

    As well, I invite you to refer to Walt Disney World Resort's - Services for Guests with Disabilities resource in preparation for your arrival, as there may be accommodations that will benefit your child during your visit, and please know that you will have access to First Aid and Baby Care Centers in each theme park. I would also highly recommend considering the purchase of the Disney Genie+ Service for each day of your theme park visits to save time waiting in lines. You can access and purchase the Disney Genie+ Service in the My Disney Experience Mobile App on each day of your theme park visits.

    Elizabeth, it was my great honor assisting you today and I hope you find this information helpful. I wish you the most magical of visits to Walt Disney World Resort together with your precious family.

    Best Disney Wishes!
