    Hey Moms Panel! You guys have always been so valuable when planning our Disney Trips. This if our first time traveling with a kiddo! He'll be 2.5 for our trip. How does dining work? Do kids under 3 eat free, or will we have to pay for his meals?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brittany! It’s so wonderful to know that we’ve been able to help you plan previous trips to the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks so much for bringing us your question!

    Did you know that Mouseketeers under the age of three are Mickey’s special guests? You will not have to purchase a park ticket for your toddler and you’re welcome to share meals with him at all-you-care-to-enjoy Walt Disney World Resort restaurants, at no extra charge. You’re also welcome to share all quick service meals with him!

    I know you have a “big boy” on your hands but you’re still welcome to use any of the Baby Care Centers at any of the four theme parks. They’re a great place to cool down, have a diaper change, or use the potty! When my youngest daughter was potty training I always preferred using the restrooms at the Baby Care Centers because there were always a lot less people using them, so that kept the distractions to a minimum.

    Brittany, there’s so much your toddler can enjoy at all of the theme parks! For some ideas, take a look at the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones page. There you will find ideas for attractions and activities you can enjoy with your child all over the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any more questions, please feel free to stop by and see us again. Helping you with all the details of your magical vacation is our favorite thing to do!
