    Do 2 yr olds eat free when included on a reservation for an Eat to the Beat Dining Package? Or would our son be able to purchase a regular kids meal when attending dinner? I only see pricing for kids 3-9.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Katherine. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is a fan-favorite. I mean, what's not to love about global culinary adventures and incredible entertainment? This festival's Eat to the Beat Dining Package is a great way to enjoy those two things together! When you reserve the Eat to the Beat Dining Package, you'll enjoy a delicious meal AND guaranteed seating for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. You ask an excellent question about including a little one in your reservation. The answer is, it depends on what participating restaurant you book your reservation for. If you book your reservation at a restaurant that features an all-you-care-to-enjoy menu like Biergarten Restaurant, Garden Grill Restaurant, or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall, your 2-year old may enjoy all that yumminess at no charge. If you visit one of the other participating restaurants that offer a traditional menu with multiple entrée choices, your little guy may share from an adult's plate at no charge, or order something from the children's menu and be charged for the cost of that entrée.

     When my kids were under the age of 3, we were always sure to book several all-you-care-to-enjoy dining experiences for our Disney vacations. It was super great that they could eat for free at these locations and often, beloved Disney Characters were there too, making the experience even better! For that reason, I recommend booking Garden Grill Restaurant or Akershus Royal Banquet Hall for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series. Your little guy will fill his belly and visit with Disney buddies, all in one place!

     I hope this was helpful, Katherine. Please let us know if you have any other questions about the Walt Disney World Resort! We'd love to help you plan a magical visit.
