    When making dining reservations for family of 5 with a dining plan would I include my 18mo. as a guest even if she doesn't have a dinning plan? What about at buffets would I have to use one of my dinning credits for her considering she doesn't have a plan?

    Hi Jen:

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for sending us your question.  When making your Advanced Dining Reservations please make sure to include every guest in your party, including your 18 month old.  This does not mean that you will use one of your dining plan entitlements on her, the dining locations simply need to know how many guests will be in the restaurant for planning and safety reasons.  When you dine at a buffet, your little one will be able to have her own plate and enjoy the buffet like every other guest, at no additional cost.  When dining at other locations, your toddler will be able to share from your plate at no extra cost as well.  If you would like to purchase a kids meal for your toddler, that is fine, however you will be responsible for the extra cost at the end of your meal.  You will not need to use one of your Disney Dining Plan entitlements on her meal.

    I hope you have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort Jen.  Please let me know if you have any other questions, I would be happy to help.
