    I am purchasing the dining plan but I have a 2 year old. I understand that the plan does not include him. Does that mean I will have to purchase a separate meal for him each time?

    You'll actually have at least three choices for your toddler at table-service restaurants:

    1. At buffet meals, your 2-year old will eat for free.
    2. Your under age 3 child can eat off of your plate.
    3. You may purchase a meal for your child from the menu.

    At counter-service restaurants, you'll have to purchase a meal unless you share with him.

    Some parents order an appetizer using the dining plan that their young child can eat. When our son was 2, he ate the best at buffet meals because he could select what he wanted including cheese, fruit and other kid-friendly items.

    I recall ordering many chicken nugget and child-sized pizza meals as well!
