    Feed the kid at WDW and it will hurt more

    All Ears is reporting.....

    ... from Editor-in-Chief Deb Wills, who is updating menus as a result of her trip to the World last weekend: I'm noticing that children's meals have increased in price to $8.59.

    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Kid's CS meals were $4.99 and the TS meals were $7.59 and up. Not sure if both CS and TS are increasing or if the $8.59 refers to only TS meals. If it is the CS meals, then this is a 42% increase. If it is the base TS meal, then it is a 13% increase.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    So far there are not updates on the Counter Service Menus

    I'm far past the Kids menu however Dining Plan or Pay as You go, it is pretty costly for what the kids are actually receiving.

    13% increase. Yikes, given the CPI for 2009-2010

    I am not sure that the kids meal is worth that much! My kids would pick at it and then eat off of my plate.

    But the next time they go, they will be considered adults anyway. But I do feel for young families! That's a big increase.

    This was posted by Buzz2001 on another thread but it applied here.
    I'm sorry but I think this is too high for a kids meal especially if you have more than one kid. $8.25 for Mac & Cheese meal? Thinking Disney is going to have to take a look at this if they want to boost attendance back up.



    Maya Grill - Menu Date: February 2010

    Kid's Menu




    Appetizers

    Mozzarella Cheese Sticks with Marinara Sauce $4.50

    Nacho Chips with salsa and cheese $4.50



    Entrees

    Grilled Chicken Parmesan served over penne pasta $8.25

    Macaroni and cheese with penne pasta $8.25

    Beef Tenderloin Tips with vegetables and choice of french fries or rice pilaf $8.95

    Grilled Cheese Sandwich with vegetables and choice of french fries or rice pilaf $8.25

    Pan Seared Salmon with vegetables and choice of french fries or rice pilaf $8.95


    All Kid's entrees include: choice of soft drink, apple juice or milk. Plus choice of a scoop of ice cream or apple sauce.
