    My youngest will turn three while we are in DW. We have the dining plan. Does he eat off my plate while 2 and order off the child menu while 3? Or will he be considered 2 the whole time?

    Hi, Sally!  Walt Disney World considers your age to be what it is on the day you check in, and that's the way it stays.  It makes me wish I had checked in the day before my 30th birthday and stayed there.  Then people would have to believe me when I tell them I'm 29!  

    Your son won't be on the dining plan, although you are welcome to purchase a kids meal if he's a big eater, and you won't be required to purchase theme park passes for him.

    Enjoy the trip with your little one!  And I hope he has a magical birthday at Walt Disney World!
