    Do children a certain age and under eat free at the character buffets? Or a discounted price?

    Hi, Kristen!

    There are three pricing levels at character dining/buffet/family style dining locations. The first is the adult price (ages 10 and over), child price (ages 3 - 9), and free (children under age 3).  At regular Table Service locations, children under age 3 can share from their parent's plate or they can order from the kids menu (most meals under $10).

    I really do miss my kids being under age 3 - not only were they adorable then, but I loved they got to eat for free at buffets! And as a bonus, kids under 3 also do not need a park ticket.  Mickey Mouse sure takes good care of his little Mouseketeers!

    Wishing you and your little ones a magical vacation to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
