    I'm trying to do our budget for food and I was looking at the character dining but it says child and adult. What are the ages for children and adults. I know that under 3 is free but is it the same as the park tickets or different?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Racheal. I hope you're having a magical week.

    You're correct, in that the age guideline for theme park tickets is the same for Character Dining as well. Children under 3 are free. There are two price categories: children between 3 and 9 years of age, and everyone 10 years of age and older. 

    If you're interested in a Character Dining experience for your upcoming trip, I recommend making an advance reservation prior to your vacation. Character Dining is highly popular! You can easily do so online or by calling Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE to speak with a friendly Cast Member.

    If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to visit us on the Panel again, Racheal.

    See you real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
