    Hi Sandra!

    Children under the age of three are admitted to the parks for free and don't qualify for the dining plan. Your children are more than welcome to share your meals at no extra charge. They are also able to enjoy any of the buffet and all you care to eat meals for free. If you should decide to order a meal from the children's menu, you would have to pay out of pocket.

    The only way that your two year olds would be able to use the dining plan would be if you were to consider them three years old on your reservation and buy park tickets for them along with the meal plan. This however, is not very cost effective. You would be better off paying out of pocket for kid's meals when needed.

    I would suggest booking a few character dining experiences. Your children would be able to eat for free while getting the chance to meet some of their favorite characters!

    I hope this helps. Have a wonderful vacation!
