Food

Time together
Eating together is an important part of any Family holiday and we know how tricky it can be to please everyone in the family. PGL Family Adventures include breakfast, lunch and dinner; making food one less thing for you to think about.

Disneyland® & Paris sightseeing excursions
Guests who are visiting Disneyland® or Paris as part of their holiday will be able to take a packed lunch, which are available to self-serve at breakfast time. These will consist of a filled baguette (or salad box), bottled water, biscuits and crisps.

Please note that the evening meal is served at a set time, which will be displayed on your itinerary (provided on arrival). Therefore anyone opting to remain at Disneyland for the illuminations (approx. 11pm in the Summer) we recommend that you pre-book a table at one of the Disney restaurants.  These can range from fast food to 'all you can eat' buffets or Disney themed meals with the characters. A list of restaurants with sample menus and prices can be seen on the ‘Dining’ pages of the Disneyland® Resort Paris website. Anyone who does not wish to dine at Disneyland is more than welcome to prepare a second packed lunch to take with them.

Something for everyone
We source fresh regional produce whenever we can and you’ll always find a good selection of seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables on offer every day. The menu will always include a vegetarian option and we will try to provide a taste of local cuisine whenever possible. We aim to provide a balance of food which is familiar but also gives guests the opportunity to try food influenced by the area they are visiting. A range of salads is available at lunch and dinner time and fresh fruit is available at every meal.

Our Group leaders are on hand to help and will look out for anyone who can’t find anything on the menu that they enjoy. If necessary our catering teams will be more than happy to prepare something special.

Allergies, intolerances and other dietary requirements
A vegetarian alternative can always be provided on all our holidays, and we can accommodate most special diets required on medical or religious grounds, just let us know when you book.

Drinks
Hot drinks, squash and water are available with meals and in France a glass of wine will be included with your evening meal. There are also water fountains available around the centre.

A dining room with a difference...
Meals will usually be served in the dining room, although at some centres there may be a barbeque on one evening.
