    if u choose to get the deluxe dining plan can u order more than one meal at a restaurant and have it taken out of your allotted meals? for a child that is under age 3?

    Hi Michelle! Our family loves the convenience and value of the Dining Plan when we visit Walt Disney World. Once you get the gist of how to use it you'll love it too. Here's a quick Dining 101 to help you navigate your upcoming visit...
    Your dining credits are only allotted to those on your dining plan or reservation who they are assigned to. Since a child under 3 years old does not have a dining plan, you would not be able to use an entitlement at a table service restaurant. You can however use an additional entitlement at a counter service location because they can be used however you choose.
    At a table service restaurant, the simplest solution would be ordering a child's meal out of pocket or having them share from your plate.
    The best option is to choose buffet style restaurants because children under 3 years old can eat and drink for free! That's what we always did before our little ones turned the big 3!  Some of our family favorites are Chef Mickey's at Disney's at the Contemporary Resort and 'OHana's at Disney's Polynesian Resort. 'OHana serves a family style character meal in the morning, and a Polynesian family style dinner.  Boma Flavors of Africa at Animal Kingdom lodge offers a tasty variety with some classics. Be sure to visit The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom Park which is a buffet with Pooh and friends. Crystal Palace serves breakfast, lunch and dinner so anytime is a great time to visit! I hope your trip is magical and memorable!
