    We will be coming in 2018 and using the deluxe dining plan. I have a 5 year old traveling with us and I've noticed some of the kids meals are items he can not/will not eat. Is he allowed to pick a meal off of the regular menu?

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    One of my favorite things about Magic Your Way Vacation Packages is being able to add a Disney Dining Plan. I just love to arrive for my vacation and not have to worry about our meals, since they are already taken care of.

    Please note that even on the 2018 Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, Guests 3 to 9 must order from a children’s menu where available, so your 5-year-old son will not be able to choose an adult entrée. I have a 6-year-old daughter who is a little picky, and many times won’t like any of the options offered in the kid’s menu. When this happens I usually talk to our server to see if any substitutions can be made, for example, she does not like mashed potatoes but will happily eat French fries. She is not a big fan of pilaf rice, but eats plain noodles. While these substitutions are absolutely not guaranteed, it is my personal experience that Cast Members go above and beyond to work with you so that your child can have a pleasant meal. Sometimes I also share some items from my plate with her, but she still gets her own meal. 

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
