    For our son that is under the age of 2, he can eat off our plates at buffets on the dining plan I'm assuming; but what about when we have a table service/quick service meal? Do we need to pay out of pocket for his meal, or does he get a meal for free?

    Hi, Jenna!

    Taking your kids to Walt Disney World before they are 3 years old is magical for them - and even more magical for the parents since these cute little Mouseketeers do not need a theme park ticket!

    Before kids are 3, they are welcome to share their parents' meals. If at a table service or quick service location you wish for your son to have his own meal, you would need to pay out of pocket for that meal. I always liked getting my kids their own food so I could order what I liked, not just what I thought they would eat off my plate. Most kids meals are around $7-$10 and will include sides and a beverage so they are pretty reasonably priced.

    Once kids reach age 3, they will need a child theme park ticket and will be charged at buffet dining locations. They remain under the child pricing until age 10. Guests age 10+ are then considered adults for pricing with dining and theme park tickets.

    Wishing you lots of magic during your Walt Disney World vacation!
