    We have twin boys that are going to be 26 mths when we travel to Disney. For their age, they are both big eaters and we have been told we are not able to purchase the Deluxe Dining Plan for them. Is there any way we can save money on meals?

    Hi Denise,

    Children under the age of three are welcome to share from an adult's plate while at any restaurant at Walt Disney World at no charge.  I have two boys as well, and they were born hungry!  When they were younger, we did very well with the dining plans, especially at the buffet-style restaurants.  I made sure that my plate included items my boys would like, and this worked fine.  At table service restaurants, I would occasionally order an appetizer, or something from the children's menu for them to share.  If you feel that your boys need something in addition to what they can share with you and/or any adult travelling with you, you are welcome to purchase a separate item from the menu for them.  You would pay for this separately at the end of your meal.  I honestly think you won't do this very often, and will find that there is plenty for your boys to eat.

    Have a great trip!
