    Hi! My daughter will be 2 during our trip this summer so we aren't buying her a park ticket. Are we still able to pay for her to eat at a character dining place (Cinderella's Royal Table, Akershus, etc.) Or will she have to eat off of our plates?

    Magical Greetings, Andrea! Welcome to planDisney. Oh Boy! I'm so excited to hear your Mousketeer will be celebrating her second birthday at Walt Disney World Resort this summer! She may not remember this birthday, but I know this visit will create magical memories for your family! Let's talk about all things birthday!

    I am a girl mama too, and I also plan on visiting Walt Disney World this summer to celebrate her birthday! The great thing about bringing Mouseketeers this young to Walt Disney World is that they're "free under three!". No theme park tickets are necessary for them, as well as Advanced Dining Reservations! As a guest under three, she can eat off your plate, or you can request an extra plate from your server. Akershus Royal Banquet Hall is a great choice because meals here are served "family-style," and if there is a menu item you love, you can request more! When I dined here last year, my oldest daughter loved the Norwegian meatballs and Kylling og Melboller: Norwegian Chicken and Dumplings, and we were able to request seconds! You can expect hellos from several of the Disney Princesses, including Belle, Tiana, and Snow White, all from the comfort of your dining table! It is an experience I recommend for all families who love the Princesses!

    No birthday visit to Walt Disney World is complete without a birthday cake! Order a Mickey Celebration Cake when you make your dining reservations, and Cast Members will bring it to your table! Don't forget to pick up a birthday button for your Princess at your Disney Resort hotel or any Guest Relations locations at the theme parks! Finally, a royal birthday calls for a gown fit for a royal ball! Visit the Disney Store website and purchase the gown of your daughter's dreams for her birthday!

    Andrea, it was so fun sharing magical tips I've used over the years with you today! Thank you again for visiting planDisney! If you have other questions before your visit, reach out any time. You've got a friend in me!

    Magic Awaits!
