    We will be traveling to Disney with our 3 children in February. Our daughter will be 14 months old. We will be purchasing a dining plan. But, my question is.. what do I feed her? Do we have to buy her a meal out of pocket at each restaurant?

    Hi, Ryan!  In many cases, children this young can eat from their parents' plates and be satisfied.  At buffet meals, you are welcome to make a separate plate for the baby without sharing anything from your own plate.

    If you have a really big eater, you may consider purchasing a child's meal for her.  Because children this age are not eligible for the dining plan, you would have to pay out of pocket if the rest of the family is on the dining plan.  

    With my girls, I always found that I would just ask for an empty plate, and there was usually enough for the little one to eat from what the rest of us were eating.  You could even add to her meal by picking up something at one of the food kiosks around the parks.  It may be less expensive than a whole kids meal.

    Have a great vacation!
