    When booking dining for a family of four including a 5 year old and a 1 year old, would I book for 3 or 4 people?

    Hi Randy!

    Oh my goodness! I'm so excited for you! There is nothing more magical than seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of a child, and you get to see it through the eyes of two kiddos! How wonderful!!!

    The Cast Members recommend booking your dining reservations for everyone in your party (including infants) so they can guarantee there is enough space to accommodate each of you at the table. I also have a family of four and I can tell you they are spot on with the reservation recommendation. You will want the needed space to spread out and ensure everyone is comfortable.

    Because you are traveling with a little one, be sure you have the Baby Care Centers on your radar. Located within all four theme parks, they are climate controlled and are the perfect place to change or feed your kiddo. In each of the Baby Care Centers, you will find a friendly Cast Member, private nursing room, changing room with tables, feeding area with highchairs, kitchen area and a small shop with your basic baby needs such as diapers, baby food, wipes, and more.  

    I know you are going to have the best time! Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you have any other questions as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
