    Hello, We are visiting Aug 14-19. I have an 11' 5' and 2 year old who will br 3 in sept. She is not on the dining plan bc she is under 2. Any advice to keep her from also wanting a kids meal wout having to pay for one? She always wants the same thing!

    Yo, Megan! While there's no such thing as a free lunch (or breakfast or dinner,) your tot can essentially eat for free at buffets by eating off of your plate. Since kids and adults pull from the same buffet selections, you can pull it off sans tantrum, no problem.

    If you're eating at a table service restaurant that serves up a plated meal, she will have plenty of easy pickings off of others' plates. When you order, ask the cast member if (s)he can bring out an extra kids plate that you can pile food onto. Alternatively, if your 5 year old is cool with the idea, as the cast member to deliver the 5 year old's plate to the 2 year old and then siphon the food from there.
