    We just booked our Disney vacation and purchased the dining plan as well and 2 year old will be celebrating his birthday while we are there. Therefore, we have made reservations at Crystal Palace. Are we required to pay for his meal since it is a buffet?

    Hi, Antonio! Congratulations on your upcoming trip and happy birthday to your little guy! He is going to love the Crystal Palace! No, you will not need to pay for his meal. Guests under the age of three may share from an adult plate at no charge at all meals, even a buffet. Buffets are great with little ones because of the variety of choices.  There is usually a section at buffet meals which is dedicated to kid-friendly options. You are welcome to select from this section for your son even though he is technically sharing your meal.  Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
