    Since a 2 yr old is free. Can they order their own food at places too for free?

    Hey there, Kacey. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    Isn't it great that children under the age of three get in to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks for free? I like to think of it as a personal gift from Mickey Mouse himself! What makes that perk even better is that children under 3 can eat for free too - here's how it works. If you are dining at all-you-care-to-enjoy style restaurants like Cape May Cafe, Chef Mickey's or 'Ohana, your under 3 child can have as many of his or her own plates from the buffet as their little tummies can enjoy. At restaurants where you select a single entree from the menu, your under 3 child is welcome to plate share from anyone at your table. If you wish to order your child his or her own entree at this style of restaurant, like California Grill or The Plaza Restaurant, only then would you need to pay.

    When my daughter was younger and free we did a lot of the all-you-care-to-enjoy style meals. What's great about this is most character meals tend to be this style of meal. So not only do you get to enjoy a great meal, you also get to meet characters during this time. Then since you've already met the characters that your little one loves, you can have more time enjoying other things within the Theme Parks. It's a great way to schedule your day. 

    I hope this helps clear any confusion up. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
