    My youngest is 9 1/2 years old. Does he have to eat from a child's menu. I am worried because the selections are slim and he is a big eater

    Oh my goodness Krista, I can remember having just this same dilemma when my youngest son was almost 10 years old and we had purchased a Disney Dining Plan for our family trip to Walt Disney World Resort; he did a lot of complaining about how hungry he'd be (in his words) - eating little kiddie meals.  
    However, he or us need not have worried a thing because nobody goes hungry on the Disney Dining Plan! We found a good solution for our family was to dine at all you care to eat buffets or meals which are served up family style because kids under 10 years old who are using the Disney Dining Plan are required to make their dining selections from the children's menu only where there is one available.  
    If I can help sprinkle any extra pixie dust onto your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort please pop back to ask me another question. 
    Have a great Disney day.
