    Do I have to consider a baby (1 year old) in a dinner reservation?

    Hi Karla!

    Making sure you have your dining reservations in hand for your Walt Disney World vacation is an important part of the planning process.

    Every person in your family group must be included in the reservation number. Children under three will not be charged for dining but they must be included. Restaurants need this so they are able to set tables that will best be comfortable and safe for you and the dining room servers. Most of the table service restaurants will not allow strollers as they take up too much room in the aisles. But they will have high chairs and infant carrier seats available for the guests.

    Your one year old will need to be included in the reservation number. If it is a dinner show they will see the age and know that there is no charge for the infant. If you have not included the child then its best to not try to alter your reservation on your own. You can call the Central Dining Reservation number and have them change it or you can always stop by the restaurant entry kiosk desk and alert them you have an infant that you were not aware you had to include in the reservation number. You might have to wait a few extra minutes while they set up a new table but they will accommodate you.
