    Hi! Planning dining reservations for my family. What age qualifies as “kids” for buffet or set price meal? Ex.: If I have a one year old, is there a charge for her at Chef Mickey’s or Be Our Guest? Thanks!

    Hiya Daley,

    Welcome to planDisney. The only thing better than planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation for your family, is the adventure itself. I still love looking at the videos and photos from my boys' first few trips. Such amazing memories!

    One of our favorite parts of our Disney World planning, is selecting which restaurants we want to dine at. There are so many fantastic choices that it is often hard to pick. I can understand wanting to budget ahead of time for your meals. The good news is there are three price levels for character meals, all you can eat buffets and family style dining locations. The adult price, which is for Guests ages 10 and over, the child price for ages 3-9 and children under the age of 3 are free. This means you will not be charged for your 1 year old prince or princess at Chef Mickey's, Be Our Guest or any other dining location. Of course, the exception would be if you were to order an actual item off of a menu for a child under the age of 3. There would be a cost for the specific meal that was ordered. 

    Don't forget to mark your calendar for the first day you can make your advanced dining reservations. Many restaurants are quite popular and reservations fill quickly. If I can help with any further planning questions, I hope you will stop back and see me

    Hope to see ya real soon,
