    I am planning our trip for Oct. It will be my husband, me, my 6 year old daughter and my 1 year old son. I am wondering if it would be worth the money to buy a meal plan or not. My 6 year old daughter doesn't eat much at all. Can I share meals with her?

    Hi Tiffany,


    The Disney Dining Plan is a great way to have some fantastic meals at Walt Disney World!  The Disney Dining Plan includes one Table Service meal, one Quick Service meal, and one snack per night as well as a refillable drink mug.  Since your daughter is over three, she will need to be on the plan as well, and she is not allowed to just eat off of your plate.  The meals for children have smaller portions and are especially geared toward the younger guests.  My children love eating them!  The plan is most economical if you have a Table Service meal every night.  I would encourage you to make Advanced Dining Reservations which you can do starting 180 days prior to your vacation.  The Quick Service Dining Plan includes two Quick Service meals and one snack a day with a refillable mug.  This may be another great option for your family depending on where you would like to dine.  Please send me a follow up question, Tiffany, if I can help you with restaurant suggestions or anything else.  Have a magical vacation!
