    Hello! We are going to travel to Disney World with a 2 yr older next year. The dining plans all say 3yr+. How do I feed my 2 yr old, lol. Would all her food be just purchased as needed? If we wanted to do one of the dinner experiences would she be allowed?

    Hi Megan!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney as you start planning your family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!  As a mom myself, I know just how exciting it is to think about watching your little one run towards Cinderella Castle, meet her favorite characters, and enjoy all the magic of this family vacation.  

    The Disney Dining Plans are convenient ways to plan and prepay for your meals with both traditional and quick service options available.  As you have noticed, both plans are available for guests three and older, but this doesn't mean that your daughter will go hungry or be left out of any of the fun.  In fact, your little princess is considered a very special guest of Mickey on your trip!  While dining, she is welcome to share a plate with others in your party and can enjoy buffet options at no charge.  If you are dining somewhere and would like to order her a separate meal, you would pay for it at that time. In addition, guests are currently allowed to bring in their own food and drinks to the park.  Especially when my older boys were little, we frequently brought in some of their favorites like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, bars, fruit and veggie pouches, and crackers.  This way I knew they always had something they liked to eat and we always had a snack on hand to help when they got hungry!  If you plan to do this, please check the latest Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules for guidelines on coolers, glass containers, and more.

    Megan, I'd love to share with you some of my favorite character dining locations for little ones as you make start to make dining plans for your vacation. Inside Magic Kingdom Park, we have visited The Crystal Palace several times with our boys to meet Winnie the Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.  If your daughter is a fan of Disney Junior like my kids, the Disney Junior Play n' Dine Breakfast at Hollywood & Vine inside Disney's Hollywood Studios is a great option.  This is a fun chance to sing and play with some characters that are toddler favorites and not found frequently in other places around the parks.  Lastly, Chef Mickey's at Disney's Contemporary Resort is always a classic choice to interact with Mickey and his friends.  If you're hoping to dine with royalty, both Cinderella's Royal Table in Magic Kingdom Park and Akershus Royal Banquet Hall in EPCOT offer chances to have a meal with Disney princesses!  

    If you have additional questions about visiting Walt Disney World Resort, please feel free to visit me or any of my other panelist pals here at planDisney again!  We also have a number of panelist videos in our planDisney Video Library that offer more of our favorite tips on planning your trip with little ones!

    See ya real soon,
