    My toddler doesn't qualify for the dining plan. How much should I budget for his meals, minus snacks for 4 days? 2 of our reservations are buffets where he can share. I have a $$ set a side for him & tips, but I don't want to carry lot of cash. Tips

    Hi Kendra!

    Most kids meals at table service restaurants are less than $10, but I would budget about $15 per meal just in case, especially for dinners.  I am an over-estimator, so I like to have a little wiggle room than come up short.   Another option is to charge everything to your MagicBand and then pay off the balance in cash.  I usually save up Disney gift cards for our vacations and pay off my room charges at the end of each day at the front desk.

    Have a magical day!
