    How does the Disney dining work for a child who is 2.5? The rest of our party will be 30+ and we all have a dining plan.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alison!

    I’m excited to learn you are planning a visit to the most magical place on earth with friends and family! I absolutely love sharing the magic with those I love. My favorite Disney memories have been made during big family trips and reunions. Those are memories I know I’ll cherish for a lifetime! Have you considered adding Memory Maker to your visit? It’s the easiest way to capture all those unforgettable moments. Thanks to Disney’s PhotoPass photographers, I have so many pictures of my entire group from those visits that I can now flip through and relive every magical moment.

    Alison, I have good news for you! Tiny Mouseketeers under the age of three are Mickey’s special guests. This means that they won’t need theme park tickets to enjoy the magic, and with Disney’s Dining Plans they will be able to enjoy sharing from your plate at no extra cost. When you are dining at Family Style or Buffet restaurants, the little ones are welcome to get their own plates and enjoy the meals till the rumbly in their tumblies is all gone. At table service and quick service restaurants, they can share of your plate. If you wish to purchase a specific kids meal for them at those restaurants, that would be an out of pocket cost for you. But in my experience, Disney portions are plentiful and I’ve been able to share and have a little leftover.

    Don’t forget to locate the Baby Care Centers at all four theme parks. You will love the clean and comfortable space to feed, change, or simply take a well-deserved break with your little one during your visit.

    Thanks for stopping by! See ya real soon,
