    I have a 10 year old who is a rather picky eater and doesn't eat much quantity wise either. We will not be using a dining plan on our upcoming trip to Disney. Will she have to order from the adult menu at table service and quick service restaurants?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Elyse!

    I have quite a bit of experience with picky eaters myself!  Would you believe my 18-year old daughter prefers to order chicken nuggets from the kids' menu?  Although the kids' menus indicate they are intended for children ages 9 and younger, you will not have a problem at all ordering your 10-year-old a child's meal at either Table-Service or Quick-Service dining locations.

    Keep in mind that if you plan to dine at a buffet or family-style location, because your daughter will be listed on your reservation as 10 years old, she will be charged the price for age 10 and older.  For this reason, my family usually chooses dining locations where we can order from a menu.  I recommend browsing some menus online in advance of your trip to see which dining locations offer your child's favorite foods.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if we can answer any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  Have a wonderful visit!
