    Hi Moms Panel! Back again with another question! My 3 year old is a picky eater. If we visit character dinner buffets, do we have to pay for him even if he doesn't eat? We just want to be prepared from a budget standpoint. Thank you!

    Hi Kristi!

    We love that you have returned with another fabulous question about Walt Disney World.  It's always a pleasure to help a returning Guest.

    From my experience you will be charged for your 3 year-old at a Character Dining buffet, even if they do not eat.   Not only are you paying for the amazing food but also the out of this world Character interaction.  Every dinner buffet I have been to at Walt Disney World has a kid's section that contains some of  my little ones favorite dinner foods including, mac 'n' cheese, chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes and pizza.  I think even your picky eater may find something he can enjoy.    Oh and save room for desserts because they have plenty of yummy treats to satisfy your sweet tooth.  

    Thanks for visiting us once again.   We are always ready to lend a helping hand should another question pop up.

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
