    We are planning a trip to Disney World next year in 2013 and both our children will be under the age of 3 how does that work food wise since they don't qualify for the dining plan??

    Hi Anna, 

    When your children are under three, you are correct that they will not pay for the Disney Dining Plan.  They are able to eat off of your plate.  What I have done in the past with my children is to book Advanced Dining Reservations at restaurants that are buffets and family style dining.  My favorite restaurants are the Crystal Palace at the Magic Kingdom where you can dine with Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, and Tigger, 1900 Park Fare at the Grand Floridian, Ohana at the Polynesian, Princess Storybook Dining at Akershus Royal Table in Epcot, and Tusker House at Animal Kingdom.  This is a fantastic time for you to come to Walt Disney World as your children are able to get into the theme parks without paying for a ticket or dining.  You will have a magical vacation with your family, Anna.  Please send me another question if I can help you in any other way.
