    I am traveling with a 2 yr old. At the Charactor Buffets I have read that the child must eat off of my plate and has to share my drinks. Is that true or are they able to have their own plate and drink? Please explain how this works as I am on the DDP

    Your two-year-old does not have to eat from your plate at character buffets, Darren.  When dining in buffet restaurants, he or she will be able to eat from his or her own plate and drink from his or her own cup at no charge; children under the age of three are not charged to eat at buffet and family-style restaurants.  When dining at a la carte table-service locations (where you choose a meal from the menu), your child is also permitted to dine free of charge, but here is where that business about sharing plates comes in.  If your two-year-old shares your meal, he or she will not be charged.  If you order a meal for him or her, you will be charged for that meal.  Since you are on the dining plan, you will need to pay out of pocket for any meals you order for your two-year-old at a la carte restaurants.  I hope that clears things up for you.

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
