    I recently had surgery for health reasons that no longer allows me to eat much at one time (gastric bypass) and I was curious, if Disney allows people who have this procedure to eat off the kids menu?

    Hi Ashlynn!

         I know exactly what you mean in your question because it seems like all of the adult meals in Walt Disney World are so huge! I had Bariatric Surgery (a Gastric Bypass) in October of 2011 and have been to Walt Disney World over 15 times since then. I have eaten at many restaurants in Walt Disney World during those trips. Yes, an adult can order a children's meal if they want typically without a problem. You may have to explain your particular situation at some restaurants because it is up to the particular restaurants if they let adults order from the kid's menu (I have only found only a restaurants in Walt Disney World that would not let an adult order from the children's menu). Another option for you would be to order a senior portion of a meal if they offer this or ask for a smaller portion of meat and any foods that you know that you can eat without any difficulties. I typically will order just the meat (like grilled chicken breast) without the bun and then any vegetables or fruit that I want for my meal and I skip ordering dessert. For buffet meals, you still would have to pay the adult meal price, but then you can pick and choose what items that you want to eat from the buffet.  I have found that Disney is typically extremely accommodating for dining special needs or requests so you should be fine sticking to your Bariatric diet.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!
