    I have a 4 yr old daughter that is 100% g-tube fed (nothing by mouth) & on the autism spectrum. Will we need to pay for meals like the character or dinner shows for her.

    Hi Laurie, How exciting that you will be visiting Walt Disney World! I completely understand your concern
    about not paying for your daughter when she will be receiving g-tube feedings and not eating from the table. I called Disney Dining to verify my answer and they confirmed that you would need to pay the child's price for any Disney Character Experiences or Dinner Shows. The reason for charging each guest at these special dining locations is because the Dinner Shows and Character Experiences are considered entertainment and special character encounters. I know your daughter will love having the characters greet her table side for photos and autographs!  Some of our favorite family Walt Disney World memories involve dining with the characters! If you have any more questions for the Moms Panel, please let us know! We are always here to help! I hope you have a magical vacation!
