    I am considering purchasing a meal plan for our upcoming WDW trip. My question is, can I purchase the 3-9 yo meal plan for my 2 (almost 3) yo? If so, will I also have to purchase a park ticket for her? Thanks in advance :o)

    Unfortunately, Jamie, Disney's dining plans are only for guests ages three and above.  You won't be able to purchase the plan for your two-year-old.  That said, she is permitted to eat for free in certain situations.  When you visit a la carte restaurants where you order from a menu, your daughter can share items from your plate for free.  If you choose to order a meal for her from the kids menu, you will be charged for that.  But if you visit a buffet restaurant, or one where meals are served family-style (Garden Grill and 'Ohana are perfect examples), your little princess can eat for free there, too.  Hopefully that will help in your food budget!  Enjoy your trip.

Meet the Panelist: Darcie, Alabama

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
