    From what I understand is that anything else ordered off the menu that is not included on your DDP you have to pay for. Also, from what I understand is that the child can share your food from your plate and they wont be charged. I never heard of the child ordering from the menu and it was free.

    From AllEars.net

    CAN MY KIDS EAT FOR FREE?
    Walt Disney World Resort Restaurants consider a child to be ages 3-9. Most restaurants have a separate children's menu with selections geared to children's tastes. Most children's meals are priced under $8, although some restaurants may have higher-priced offerings.

    At table service restaurants, there is no charge for children under 3 who share from an adult's plate. However, if you order from a menu for a children under 3, you will be charged the menu price.

    At buffet and "all-you-care-to-eat" restaurants, there is also no charge for children under 3 who share from an adult's plate. However, if you order from a separate children's or ala carte menu for a child under 3 (rather than eating from the buffet or all-you-care-to-eat offerings), you will be charged the price reflected on the menu.

    At counter service restaurants, you will be charged the menu price if you order a meal for a child under 3.

    NOTE: When making your Advance Reservations, be sure to include all children in your count of members of your party, even if they will be seated in a highchair.

    Sorry, but this is misinformation. Children under three are allowed to share off a plate from a parent at a buffet without being charged (at Table Serve restaurants anyone can share without a charge). They also do not sell dining plans for children under 3 years old as they expect that parents will just be sharing. Disney is not giving out any free food.

    They are TOTALLY wrong I just re-read the Disney dining plan!! Here is the link when you open it, click on the right hand side adobe file 2012 dining plan. It clearly states "they may share from an adult plate at no charge, or a meal may be purchased from the menu"

    No, they don't have their own policies. Disney is about as bureaucratic as it gets, and each restaurant follows company policy. The only exceptions on Disney property will be 3rd party locations (like Rainforest) that follow their own corporate rules. I strongly advise you not to expect anything for free at any restaurant.

    We are going with the assumption we thought we have to pay for anything she eats by herself. Share with Teppon, Yak,Sci Fi,Via.. They let them have a plate at Buffets you do not have to share off your plate.

    I know I told her there is no way and to question him again I heard her say to him she has never seen this. He offered this about the food. She did not ask. We knew we couldn't, but then he said that and I told her to question that real real good. Yes, we can buy the plan for her if under 3 we just have to pay park tickets if we do and so we are just going to order things we can share with her and that have a bit more to them so no one goes hungry. I wouldn't even ask either. But, some on this board said they got away with it by asking. We are not its too embarrasing when people are behind you thinking your cheepys. We are not. We are planning on bringing extra money to buy her things if she is hungry and needs her own plate
