    I will be visiting WDW 1/8-1/13 and we have the regular dining plan, I was curious if my 2 year old will eat for free or if I will have to pay for him with cash, The meal plan just says 3 and up receive a kids meal?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Well, it looks like your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner.  I am so thrilled for you and your family because the MAGIC will soon surround you.  Let me add that there is a lot of it, too.  Let's get started so that you can continue with your WDW planning.  

    You are more than welcome to bring in your own meals for your little prince or you may purchase a kid's meal at any of the restaurants.  When my kids were small, I made it a point to carry leftovers from all my meals because one, there was so much food and two, my little ones enjoyed snacking throughout the day. I recommend selecting all-you-care-to-eat buffets.  Your little prince can eat off of your plate or you can prepare a small plate for him.  I hope this helps as you continue with your planning.

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  If you are looking for some great Disney gear for your upcoming trip, I recommend the Shop Disney Parks App.  Avoid the crowds, find something for every member of your family and all from your own phone.

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
