    We have the disney dining plan and have made reservations for various character meals. My daughter will be 4 and does not always eat especially if she is excited about her surroundings. Will I have to purchase a meal or can she share ours?

    Hi, Brenda!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm excited you have a chance to enjoy so many character meals. It's our favorite way to meet and take pictures with our favorite Disney personalities.

    If your character meal is a table service restaurant with a menu, you are more likely able to work out a meal plan where your daughter can share your food. Talk to your waiter or waitress and see what can work. If your character meal has a buffet, you will probably have to purchase a meal for your daughter. But it can't hurt to talk to your waiter or waitress to see if there are any other options.

    I know you'll have an unforgettable experience at Walt Disney World Resort. I highly recommend checking out this great planning guide for doing Disney with pre-schoolers. It may have some extra ideas for fun with your daughter.

    Let me know if I can help answer any other questions before you arrive!
