    Hi - We purchase the Dining Plan for my husband and I as well as our two girls. My question is... my son is under 3, so do I have to purchase his meal each meal? Can he just share with me and my husband? I am a bit lost on how to make sure he is covered

    Hi Gwendolen,

    Thanks for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    As you know, children under three years of age are not included on your Disney Dining Plan. However, your little one can certainly eat off of your plate, so you do not need to purchase a meal for him when you dine. In addition, if you're dining at a Table-Service buffet or family-style restaurant, your son can have his own plate and dine for free! At Quick-Service locations or Table-Service restaurants where you order from a menu, your son is welcome to share from your plate.

    For some additional tips, be sure to check out this wonderful resource on traveling to Walt Disney World Resort with little ones.

    I hope this answers your question, Gwendolen! Please stop back and let me know if you have any additional questions about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Wishing you magical memories to last a lifetime!
