    I am looking to get a plan that includes tickets, room, and a dining plan. I have a 18 month old. How does she work on the dining plan?

    Hey, Alaine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited you are taking your little princess to the place "where dreams come true." Mickey Mouse and the gang are going to be so happy to meet her.

    Here is the really great part. Kids under three years old do not participate in the Disney Dining Plan or need to purchase a Magic Your Way theme park ticket. They are free...yes, I said it...Free! For meals, you may bring your own food for her into the theme parks or purchase meals separately. You will likely save tons this way especially if you keep leftovers for her. You are welcome to share food off your plate or even fix a small plate from a buffet for her at your dining location. Here are the Theme Park Rules including what you may bring inside the theme parks.

    You will only need to purchase a Magic Your Way Vacation Package for all Guests 3 years and older.

    Disney Dad Tip: Please get tons of pictures. You may want to invest in Memory Maker to capture all your favorite moments with everyone in the picture. We always take a picture in the same location and have enjoyed watching our kids "grow up" at Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope this helps you plan a wonderful Disney vacation for your family. Please let us know if you have any more questions.

    Alaine, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort!
