    I have an 8 yr old with an adult appetite who will be eating on the child dining plan. He prefers adult foods. Would he be able to eat adult items that are smaller sized with the child DP?

    Many of Walt Disney World's restaurants do offer at least one entree that might appeal to those with more mature taste buds.  While you will find typical kid food like pizza, chicken nuggets and hot dogs to be a fairly universal offering, so, too, will you find items like grilled meats, pasta dishes, and specialty dishes.  These entrees are not as widely available on the kids menu, but they do exist.  Your son will, though, be required to order from the kids menu to participate in the dining plan.  And unfortunately, it isn't possible to size-down a regular menu item to a kid menu portion.  I hope that clears things up for you, Darcie. 

    PS.  Great name!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
