    My 10 year old is a picky eater. He would prefer the taste of the childrens menu items vs the adult selections. If I buy a dining plan I pay adult price for a ten year old. Can I request larger portions of the kids menu items to replace adult entree?

    Hi Kate,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My family enjoys the value of the Disney Dining Plan, especially when we have booked Character Dining Experiences or Signature Dining. We also love having the option of different Plans since during each of our visits we like to try new Restaurants, so we need a Plan that fits with those particular Dining Experiences. I have some picky eaters in my family too however, we have always been able to find menu choices at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and Theme Parks that make them happy. 

    Although you would have to pay the adult Disney Dining Plan pricing for your ten year old, he can certainly order off of the Children's Menu if that is what he prefers. If he would like an "adult size" portion of a Children's Menu item, then you will need to ask the Cast Member serving you if that is possible. You may find that there are Restaurants that will accommodate your request and others that are unable to. I suggest looking over the Disney Dining Plan Locations list ahead of time and then making your Advanced Dining Reservations based on the menu selections at the Restaurants. It will give your son the opportunity to find other meals that he will enjoy outside of the Children's Menu offerings.

    I hope this information helps. Please visit us should you have any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
