    Hi! We are planning a vacation to WDW with a three year old. We are not getting the dining plan and I am trying to budget for our meals. Can my 3yo eat off of my plate at table service restaurants or do we have to order her a meal of her own?

    Dear Kimberly,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your wondEARful question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    For your three year-old, she is able to share meals with you at Quick-Service or Table-Service locations that are NOT prix fixe locations. For buffets, dinner shows, character meals, or any other Table-Service restaurant that has a fixed price per person. When it is something like that, you are paying not only for the food but for the character or show experience, so she would not be able to share costs for those.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
