    I have a child that is under 3, therefore he is free. He will be 2 1/2 when we go, we have purchased a meal plan, but he is not listed on our meal count. What will he be able to eat?

    Hiya Alyssa!

    Thank you so much for stopping by!  That's such the great thing about traveling with a little one under 3--free park admission!  What you'll do with your little guy is that you'll include him in your count for all your dining reservations, so he'll have room at the table.  For all buffet style,  all-you-care-to eat, or family style, he'll be able to eat whatever you get for him to eat.  For any Table Service or Quick Service Dining locations he's welcome to share anything from your plate, or you're welcome to buy him a kids meal, or a la carte items (if available).  

    What we typically did at this age with all three of our kids, was either shared from my plate (or my husband's)--we find the portion sizes to be very generous, so it was quite easy to share with our little ones.  We also carried applesauce and yogurt pouches with us as well; we found they were SUPER easy to transport and super easy to supplement any meals when we needed to!

    Be sure to check out this Planning Guide for Parents of Pre-School Kids & Little Ones for more ideas about vacation planning with your little guy!

    Have a magical vacation!
