    We are a family of four including a 16 and 17 yearl old daughter. If I do the dining plan can they still order adult size children portions off menu. They are very picky eaters. I don't mind paying the adult cost I just want them to eat whattheylike.Thank

    Hi There Stacy-Anne,

    Boy, do I know about picky eaters!  Three out of my four children are experts in this department and can make dining out quite a challenge. That said, we have always been able to find menu choices at the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels and Theme Parks that make them happy. 

    Although you will have to pay the adult Disney Dining Plan pricing for your daughters, they can certainly order off of the Children's Menu if that is what they prefer. If they would like an "adult size" portion of a Children's Menu item, then you will need to ask the Cast Member serving you if that is possible. You may find that there are Restaurants that will accommodate your request and others that are unable to. I suggest looking over the Disney Dining Plan Locations list ahead of time and then making your Advanced Dining Reservations based on the menu selections at the Restaurants. It will give your daughters the opportunity to find other meals that they will enjoy outside of the Children's Menu offerings.

    I hope this information helps. Please stop back by should you have any additional vacation planning questions!
