    I will be going to Chef Mickey's with my 2-year-old. How does pricing work now that it's family style and he's under 3? Is he allowed to eat off of the adult's plate since he won't eat much?

    Hi Zoey!

    I'm so happy you sailed straight past the second star to the right and straight on to planDisney. I foresee many Walt Disney World adventures and definitely some rides on Peter Pan's Flight in your future!

    I agree with your decision to dine at Chef Mickey's since it’s one of our family’s all time favorite dining experiences in all the (Walt Disney) World! It doesn’t matter your age, there’s just something that makes us all feel like a kid at heart at that restaurant. Just to let you know, currently Mickey Mouse and his pals will be making surprise appearances in each of the dining rooms. They won’t be able to stop by each table, but they will still infuse the room with high energy.

    No one wants to have to walk the plank when it comes to the dining rules, so I totally respect you for asking this question! Like Peter Pan, your son will "never grow old" if he is 2 years old during your vacation to warrant having to pay for a child’s meal for him. Since your son is two, he can eat for free at restaurants that feature an all-you-care-to-eat or family style menus like Chef Mickey’s. Shh, don’t tell the Lost Boys from Never Land this information or they might try to pass for 2 year olds! 

    Don’t feel rushed like Captain Hook did when Tick-Tock the Crocodile was following him. All the panelists at planDisney are here for you and happy to help with vacation planning! So be like Tinker Bell and fly back by if you have more questions. Wishing you a pixie dusted vacation with your family!

    Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust,
