    Hi! My husband and I are planning to go to WDW in early October our son will be 18 months at the time. Is it worth getting the Meal Plan??? Thanks!!

    Hi Katie,

    I'm a big fan of the Disney Dining Plan.  We frequently incorporate it into our family vacations to Walt Disney World.  We find it to be very cost-effective.  Until your son is three years old, you will not need to purchase the dining plan for him even if you choose to order it for your husband and yourself.  Your son can order a children's meal separately or he can enjoy some of the goodies off of your plate.  After he is three, though, definitely plan to use the Disney Dining Plan for him too.  In my opinion, there is no less expensive way to feed a child at Walt Disney World.

    Best wishes as you plan your upcoming October vacation!  There's nothing more magical than watching a toddler experience Walt Disney World.
