    Donna from OH Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Our youngest will turn 10 years old days before our trip in August of this year. She has ARFID and only eat certain foods. Is she able to order from the kids menu? Or bring her food as she will only eat certain things and in small quantities.

    Hi Donna! Thanks for stopping by planDisney.

    I'm happy that I came across your question this afternoon and am able to offer some insight for your upcoming trip. My nine-year-old daughter also has ARFID and is very limited in the variety of foods that she eats. We're still trying to navigate traveling with her and being away from the comforts of home. Over the last few years, we've discovered some tips and tricks that have worked for us when visiting Walt Disney World.

    First off, although your youngest will be turning 10 years old before your upcoming trip, she will be able to order off the kid's menu at many of the Walt Disney World dining locations. Just keep in mind that for table-service restaurants that have a prix fixed menu (including buffets), she will be required to pay the adult price for these meals. Pricing is solely determined by the age of the Guest. We have stayed away from these types of meals recently if there is nothing we think she will eat but have made exceptions for character meals knowing that there is more to the experience than just the food. 

    When visiting the parks, you are allowed to bring food inside with you. One thing that my daughter has been eating lately is peanut butter and Nutella sandwiches. We make sure to pack a few in a plastic container and bring them with us in our park bag. This way, if we are eating a meal during the day, we can feed her before sitting down to eat. While we haven't tried to bring her meals inside a table service restaurant with us, I'm sure you can speak to the Cast Member where you plan to eat to see if this is an option during your visit. Otherwise, if you grab a quick service meal during the day, once you sit down, you'll be able to pull out the food you brought for her so you can all eat together.

    Donna, if you are flying and are unable to bring her favorite food items with you, you can order groceries to be delivered directly to your Disney Resorts hotel. There are several grocery delivery services available in the Orlando area, and many of them can be dropped off at Bell Services at your resort without you being present.

    I hope you and your family have a magical visit next month! If you have any additional questions or need some more tips, please reach out to me directly at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
