    I have a 2.5 yo who is a big eater. I know under 3 aren't charged for meal plan but eating off of our plates won't be enough. Do I buy his food separate? I think the counter meal, sit down meal, snack would be good for me and dad but I'm worried about baby

    Hi Amy,

    You are absolutely right, the Disney Dining Plan is unavailable for Guests under the age of 3, but they may share from an adult plate at no charge, or a meal may be purchased from the menu. The price of the meal will be added to your bill. 

    If you do decide to add a Disney Dining Plan to your vacation package, you can simply pay for any child meals that you wish to purchase for your little one.

    One way to maximise your Disney Dining Plan would be to make reservations at buffet restaurants where eating off your plate will not be a problem as you can go up for food as many times as you like. 

    Wishing you a magical trip filled with memories which will last a lifetime!
