    We will be in Disney in October with our 8, 6, and 2 yr old. We do not plan on purchasing a dining plan, but would like to eat at a few character meals. At the buffets, will our 2 yr old eat for free or will we be charged for her?

    Hi there Katie!

    How exciting to be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in October!  Character Dining is a great way to meet several Disney Characters while enjoying a delicious meal. I am happy to report that Guests under the age of 3 are not charged when sharing from an adult's plate at Character Dining experiences and all-you-care-to-enjoy dining locations. 

    I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have as your vacation draws closer. Best wishes for a magical trip, Katie!

    Bon Appétit,
