    When I make a dining reservation online do I count my two year old in the reservation number even bough they eat free?

    Hi Nicole, 

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  You are going to make some fantastic memories with your two year old at Walt Disney World Resort, how exciting for you!

    When making your Advanced Dining Reservations online, please include everyone in your travel party, including your two year old.  This information is needed for safety reasons and for the Dining Location to effectively prepare for their reservations.  Guests under three years of age do not require a Theme Park Ticket, however they should be included when making your reservations.  With that being said, guests under three years old may share a meal with other guests in your party or help themselves at a buffet, however if you would like to order anything additional for your child it will be at an additional cost.  When my daughter was younger, there were times that we would share my meal, however sometimes I would order her a kids meal as we did not want to enjoy the same entrees.  The cost of your child's meal will be added to your cheque at the end of your dining experience.  Guests using the Disney Dining Plan will be responsible for any extra items ordered above and beyond your Dining Plan entitlements, including kids meals and beverages for children under the age of three. Again, at a buffet there will be no additional charges for children under the age of three.  

    I hope that answers your question, Nicole.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to help.
