    Extra-Special "Kid Stuff" at Walt Disney World Resort

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Extra-special adventures await toddlers, preschoolers and teens alike at Walt Disney World Resort. Kids can sing along with Chip 'n' Dale around a campfire, stay up all night playing video games or splash around at a water park -- all without ever leaving Walt Disney World Resort. Even that timeless icon of kid cuisine -- peanut butter and jelly -- is reinvented Disney-style as the yummiest milkshake ever.

    Other services at Walt Disney World Resort can make traveling with infants or small children more hassle-free and a whole lot more fun. And parents can enjoy a night out . . . and leave the kids at a Disney resort where they will be cared for and entertained.

    Hmmm... anyone ever do this? I wonder if a child size portion will count as a child table service point on the dining plan. This will add a little more food variety... the chicken nuggets, hot dogs, mac and cheese gets old after 4 or 5 days. It would be nice to order something in a childs size portion for my kids that is different from the typical kid fare.

    I very much would like to know this as well! Does anyone know where to go for this sort of specialized information? Also my daughter will be 10 when we get to WDW and she doesn't eat "kid food" (as she terms it) her little brother does sometimes. She and I usually share adult meals, will she count as an adult or a child on the (2nd tier) Dining Plan? I do apologize if this question is in the wrong place.

    Would love to know more about

    Disney's Pirate Cruise Adventure, where children depart from the Grand Floridian Marina to visit exotic "ports of call" along Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon as they follow clues and the pirate's trail to buried treasure. During the voyage, the children enjoy a reading of "The Legend of Gasparilla." Monday through Saturday, 9:30-11:30 a.m., includes lunch (ages4-10, toilet trained).

    Thanks!

    I've ordered kids meals for myself at WDW. Adult portions are usually so big!

    What about the Epcot passports? Do they still do that? I've thought of doing it myself. I'm a very old child!

    I've done that before, and personally I love the passport more than the masks, their easier to carry around. I think they may still do that, but I'm not 100% sure. I did that maybe, 2 years ago, so things may have changed. I remember, when I got a they tags, they gave me this giant poster with all the characters signatures on it! I was so happy! Lol

    I was down there recently, and the sign was still up. So I think it is still going on.
