    I have a 10-year old, but she doesn't eat much and I see that a 10 year old is considered an adult and has to have the adult dining plan. Can she still order off the kids menu?

    Hi Peni! 

    When you purchase the Disney Dining Plan you will need to purchase the adult DDP for her since she is over 10 years old. When you dine at the Table Service restaurants you can order a child's meal, but you are still paying for an adult meal because you are using an adult DDP credit. 

    The portions are large, but you could consider boxing up half of her meal if she can't finish. I know this can be an inconvenience while walking around the parks, but this is a great option when dining at your resort. 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
