    children ages for the dining plans

    Hi Leah!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. While I like to think everyone at Walt Disney World Resort is a kid at heart, you are correct that there are set ages for when a child becomes a Disney Adult!

    For both theme park tickets and the Disney Dining Plan, an adult is considered any Guest that is ten or older. A children's rate would apply for any mouseketeer between the ages of three and nine. While our youngest visitors under the age of three are free. For the Disney Dining Plan, this doesn't necessarily mean that your two year old could order a meal at no cost though. The expectation for toddlers is that they can either eat off Mommy or Daddy's portion or Guests can pay out of pocket for a meal if they'd like. The exception to this would be at any buffet location. I know for my family this makes up most of our Advanced Dining Reservations for our upcoming trip because my toddler practically eats the same quantity I do!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions!

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
