    Do we have to include our 20 month old son on dining reservations for places such as Chef Mickeys & 1900 Park Fare? Also, do we have to pay for him to eat, or do we feed him from our plates? We just aren't sure what to do & would love some advice.

    Hi Lisa!   Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   Traveling with your toddler is going to be so much fun.  Watching little ones experience all the magic of Walt Disney World is probably the best feeling EVER!

    Since your son is under 3-years old he will be considered a guest of Mickey Mouse and will not need a ticket to enter the parks, or to buy a meal at dining locations.   Your prince will be welcome to eat off of your plate at all dining locations.   Best yet, at buffet services you can simply create him his own plate.   I have found that even if you are not dining at a buffet, the portion sizes are rather large and you will have no problem sharing.   You will need to include your little one in your dining reservations,  this will allow the restaurant to seat you at a table that is large enough to accommodate your entire party.  

    Thanks for stopping by today Lisa, if I can be of any further assistance to you as you plan your magical vacation please don't hesitate to ask.  

    Happy Disney Dining,
