It's my understanding that kids under 3 can eat free off an adults plate. However, if you order a kids meal for the child under 3, you have to pay full price. I have no problem with that policy. However, it is my understanding that children under 3 cannot partake in the DDP. I guess it isn't offered to very little ones? Why can't you buy the DDP for kids under 3, and forced to buy off the children's menu for under 3 kids? It doesn't seem make sense, unless I am wrong? Does someone have a good explanation for this policy? Why would Disney care if parents bought a DDP for a child under 3, and let them have his/her own meal?
