    Heading to WDW w/ 3 year old daughter. If we do the dining plan, do we have to purchase plan for her too?She is a picky eater, so I would rather pay out of pocket for her if she actually eats a meal. (Understanding buffet we are charged for her regardless)

    Hi Alicia!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your little princess and I'm happy to help you with your plans. Be sure to take advantage of the FastPass+ System during your trip because it's the perfect way to make the most of your time in the theme parks. I love that we can enjoy some of the most popular attractions and Character Experiences without  having to wait in their Standby queues. This is especially helpful when you are enjoying the theme parks with your little ones!

    The Disney dining plans are a great way to enjoy many of the incredible dining experiences at Walt Disney World Resort while paying for the majority of your dining expenses in advance. When you add a dining plan to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, it is attached to your Disney Resort hotel reservation and you will receive one set of dining entitlements, based on the dining plan you choose, per person on your reservation per night of your reservation. So all Guests who are 3 years old and above will be part of your dining plan. Unfortunately, there is not an option to purchase a dining plan for only a portion of the Guests on your reservation.

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
