    Morning moms & dads! Since kids 3 and under "eat free" I was hoping you could tell me a little more. When will kids be expected to share off plates? When/ where will they be offered own meal and is that always buttered noodles? TIA

    Hi Ashley!

    Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Let me help with some answers to your dining questions for children under the age of 3.

    In the "world" of Walt Disney World restaurants, children are between the ages of 3 and 9.  You are correct that children under 3 eat for "free" when they share from an adult's plate.  This is the same throughout all restaurants on property, whether table service, counter service or buffet.  You can choose to order items off of the children's menu, but you would be charged for those items.   Also, when you make your advance dining reservations, (407) WDW-DINE, be sure to include your child(ren) under 3 in your headcount.  

    Please write back to me if I can help answer any additional questions.  I am happy to help.

    Until then, I wish you a magical vacation!
