    I am planning dining for an upcoming trip to WDW that will include two adults and twins under 3. Would the twins be charged for meals at buffets or family style meals or would they be included in the adult price since they are under 3?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Adam. I'm so excited to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones in tow! You're sure to make lots of magical memories. 

     You ask an excellent question. I'm pleased to tell you that children under the age of 3 may eat at no charge at all-you-care-to-eat meals (which includes buffets and family-style menus). Isn't that incredible? As a mom of three, I highly recommend booking as many of these dining experiences as you can for your upcoming visit. My youngest was 3-years old for our most recent visit this summer, and it was practically painful to pay for her meals when we sat down to all-you-care-to-eat meals. She's super picky and eats like a bird, so we desperately missed the days where she could dine at no charge! It's important to note that you don't need to order your kiddos their own entrées at any traditional Table-Service restaurants. They're welcome to share from your plate at no charge! You can certainly also order them one entrée to share. 

     I'm always sure to book a few Character Dining Experiences for my family's Disney vacations. At these unique meals, my kids can fill their tummies AND see their favorite Disney Characters, all in one place! What could be better than that? One of my family's all-time favorites is Chef Mickey's. This Character Dining Experience offers an all-you-care-to-eat, family-style meal - perfect for your visit with your twins!

     I hope this was helpful, Adam. Please let us know if you have any other questions! We'd love to help you play a magical stay.
