    We are travelling with a 2 year old. When we include a dining plan, does it cover the 2 year old? If not then what happens when we all go to a restaurant (all the adults on dining plan)?

    Hi Graham!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am glad you asked this question.  Since toddlers do not require a Magic Your Way Base Ticket, and technically stay and eat free, they are covered in terms of lodging, theme park tickets and dining to some extent.  Toddlers are expected to share with an adult at a la carte dining locations as well as Quick Service Dining locations.  I have typically found this to be enough for both my daughter and I, however occasionally, she wanted something totally different than what I wanted and we ended up ordering a kids meal for her.  I find that the kids meals are very reasonably priced and it made everyone happy.   In terms of Quick Service, we always had enough to eat, but I usually use one of our snack entitlements just to add a little bit more to our meal.  The fruit cups and packaged grapes are a great healthy choice and are available as snacks.  At a buffet or family style location, toddlers are able to have their own plate and dine from the buffet or family platter.  

    I hope my answer helped Graham.  If you need further clarification or have any other questions, please don't hesitate to send me another question.  I would be happy to help a fellow Canadian plan a magical trip to Walt Disney World any day!
