    Our 180 days for dining is coming up. We have a 5 yr and a two yr old. My question is when I reserve the ADR do I make reservations for 3 or 4 people? I only ask bc the 2 yr doesnt have a dining plan.

    Hi Stephanie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You are going to have such a magical trip with your two little ones! Seeing all of the Walt Disney World Resort through their eyes is such a unique experience, and I am so excited for you to make these memories that you will remember forever!

    When you make your Advance Dining Reservations, you will need to include everyone in your party - even your 2-year old. This is mostly for safety reasons, but also to make sure that your table is set up appropriately. When you check-in for your dining reservation, they will verify the number on your reservation and you can let them know if you need a highchair.

    I like to take advantage of Character Dining when my family has the dining plan. These experiences are typically buffet-style and your 2-year old is free to eat from the buffet, even without having the dining plan! At other non-buffet/family-style locations, your littlest tot can share from your family's plates or you can choose to purchase an additional meal, as well.

    I hope this helps with planning your dining reservations, Stephanie! Enjoy your trip!
