    Hello! We will have 3 adults and 1 child on the dining plan when we visit in the fall. But we will also have an additional child, 3 years old, with us when we visit the parks. Should I simply plan on ordering her meals a la crate?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Beth. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     You'll really enjoy using the Disney Dining Plan. It's so flexible and convenient! You are certainly welcome to order à la carte items for the 3-year old visiting the theme parks with you. When you place an order at a Quick-Service or Table-Service dining location, simply tell your server what you'll specifically be using dining entitlements for and what items you'll be paying for out of pocket. Any Guest with a dining plan may also use their dining entitlements to pay for meals for family and friends not staying with them. 

     Did you know that you can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to place mobile food and beverage orders at select Quick-Service dining locations? You'll avoid the line when you order ahead of time, saving you precious time in the theme parks! As an added convenience, you can use your Disney Dining Plan meal entitlements to purchase the items you ordered on the app. 

     I hope this was helpful, Beth. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have about your Fall visit to the Walt Disney World Resort
