    Hi, the dinning plan it can be use in others Disney Resorts our you need to be staying at that resort to used? If there a special offers for kids under 3 years?

    Hi Paola, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this most delicious question!

    My family are huge fans of the Disney Dining Plan. We use it almost every trip for the convenience, value and delicious dining options. We also love using the Resort refillable mugs which are included with the Disney Disney Plan at our Disney Resort hotel for unlimited coffee, tea, and fountain drinks throughout our stay. Then, at the end of our trip, our mugs get packed away in our suitcase as a terrific souvenir which we can use back home as a perfect daily reminder of our vacation.

    Paola, you will be pleased to know that the Disney Dining Plan can be used at over 100 locations throughout Walt Disney World, including the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, all Walt Disney World Resort hotels, and at Disney Springs! Therefore, the Disney Dining Plan will definitely travel with you as you experience your vacation and make your way throughout Walt Disney World.

    While there are no Disney Dining Plans available for children under 3 years of age, you will be happy to know that there are still plenty of options. When dining at Table-Service buffet or family-style restaurants, all children under 3 who are dining with you are able to have their own plate and eat free. At Quick-Service or Table-Service restaurants where you order off a menu, you are welcome to either share your meal with any children under 3, or, if you prefer, you may pay for a meal off the children's menu.

    When my children were young, we typically preferred dining at buffet-style restaurants which provided plenty of options for fussy toddlers without limiting or restricting meal options for mom and dad. A few of our favorites included Chef Mickey's, The Crystal Palace, and Tusker House Restaurant.

    Hoping this provides some "food for thought" Paola, as you countdown to your upcoming trip. Bon Appetit!
