    I have a 4 year old son and a 6 year old daughter who don't eat very much. We got the dining plan. I was wondering if when we do a quick service meal or a table service meal, can the kids share a meal therby using up only one of their meal entitlements?

    Hi Anjanette!

    I love the Disney Dining Plan (DDP) and we buy it every time we visit! One of our favorite things to do at Walt Disney World is enjoy the delicious food at the wide array of wonderful restaurants! 

    As far as Quick Service meals go, you can definitely have your kids share. When we visit Epcot, we actually like to order just one  meal at every quick service restaurant around the world and we all share. This way we all get a taste of the countries without filling up during any one meal. You can certainly save your child's meal entitlements for those quick service meals.

    It's a little tricker with table service meals. In my experience, I have been able to have my kids share a meal during a Table Service Meal when ordering off the menu. However, you cannot have your kids share a meal at a buffet. When my daughter was four she ate like a butterfly, barely finishing a bite, much less a meal, and we were able to have her share with us when ordering off the menu, but we would use her entitlements when we ate at a buffet (like Chef Mickey's or Crystal Palace.)
