    My daughter will be 2.5 when we travel. I understand kids under 3 eat free at buffets (like Chef Mickey). When I do a search do I include her in the number of people? She'll need a chair. What about at table service restarunts like dinner at Be Our Guest?

    Hello Christina,

    I love seeing young Disney Guests visiting Walt Disney World and beginning their magical and memorable moments at such a young age, it truly warms my heart.

    Disney Guests, under the age of 3, are able to visit Walt Disney World for free but need to be included in all your reservations, including dining. When making your advance dining reservation, do include them. While Guests under the age of 3 are able to dine off their parent's plate, at all table-service restaurants, if you feel they would prefer something off the kids menu, you will be charged. The same for counter-service restaurants, your child can share a meal with you but if you feel a kid's selection will be more to their liking, you will be charged.  

    This is a fantastic time for them to experience Walt Disney World and watching the excitement in their eyes as they meet their favorite Disney characters and ride a new attraction, will be memories you will have for a lifetime. Enjoy your visit and if I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
