    Dining Help!! I'm wondering if my son who is 12 can order from the chidlren's menu - our whole group is on the Dining Plan....

    Hi Cindi!

         Yes, anyone can can order from the children's menu if they want to! Just inform your server that your son will be ordering a children's meal. My son who is thirteen now still orders at least half of his Table Service Meals from the children's menu. Keep in mind that you will still be charged an adult Table Service Credit for your son's meal even though he got a children's meal.  I have discovered that it is usually better to pay cash for the children's meal and save the Adult Dining Credit for another meal later because the children's meals are normally between $8.00 to $12.00. You can utilize the saved Table Service Credits for another Table Service Meal later in your trip or even for a Signature Dining Experience (a 2 Table Service Credit Meal). I have been able to add 1 to 2 more Table Service Meals to each trip by using this strategy.

    The only situation that this strategy will not work is for a buffet style restaurant. At a buffet an adult (a person 10 and above) must pay full adult price or use one adult dining credit whether they eat one piece of lettuce or a full meal.

    I hope that you have some magical dining experiences on your next trip to Walt Disney World!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
