    Does a child under 3 need to be included in the total number for a character meal when making a reservation? Or do we just include the number of adults?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    What a great question!  When setting your Walt Disney World dining reservations, you will need to include ALL members of your party no matter what their age is.  Each restaurant has an occupancy number that is closely monitored by Cast Members for the safety of guests. In addition to the adults in your party, all children, including those under the age of 3, should be included in your party size.   

    Diane's Tip of the Day:  Character dining is a great way to grab some great pictures with some of your favorite Disney characters.  It is also a great way from having to waste time waiting in the lines inside the parks.  

    Have a MAGICAL day and "SEE YOU REAL SOON!"
