    My youngest daughter will be an older 2yo & I know she can go for free, but I was thinking of paying the bit extra for her to be counted as a regular child so she can be included in the dining plan. Do you think this would be a lot less complicated?

    Hi Samantha -

    Since you'd have to pay for her admission into the parks, I wouldn't count her as a regular child.

    Although it is great to have the dining plan, you can always buy her meals a la carte. If you dine at a buffet, you aren't charged for children two and under, and she is able to have whatever she'd like. I think you'd probably save money by just buying the meals that you'd need to buy.

    I hope that helps! Have a great vacation!
