Yes, you will eat at the same time as the child - I do suggest taking them to the informal buffet area rather than the main dining room where dinner takes on average 1 1/2 hrs. You have asked about food in another thread where I replied that you have to bring your own, but yes, the waiters will heat it up, and they will also mash up vegetables and potatoes for the child.
