    Hi, when booking a character dining reservation does a 1 year old to be included in the number of guests? Thanks

    Hello there, Rebecca!

    I’m so happy to hear that you’re planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort. I hope you’re enjoying making all the pixie-dusted vacation plans!

    Yes, when booking dining reservations online or by phone, it is best to include every person in your party count, even a toddler without a paid theme park ticket. This is for restaurant safety and so Cast Members can prepare a table large enough to accommodate your little one’s high chair. However, children under 3 years old do eat for free at all-you-care-to-enjoy dining experiences, including Character Dining meals! There are also meals specifically created with toddlers’ taste preferences and smaller appetites in mind at some restaurants for a reasonable price, so be on the lookout for those on the menu.

    I hope this helps you plan, Rebecca, and that you have a practically perfect visit to the Happiest Place on Earth with your little Mouseketeer! Please stop by again with any other questions you can dream of as your trip draws near.

    Wishing you magic,
