    For dining reservations do I need to include children under 2? I have reservations for 13 at Chef Mickey , Spirit of Aloha, Hollywood Vine , 1900 Park and Crystal Palace. Thank you .

    Hi Christine!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Making sure that your dining reservations are neat and tidy before your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort is so essential! Looking over your dining reservations has my tummy rumbling. You have some of my favorite dining reservations booked. How would you feel about adding one more (me) onto your plans?!

    Each person in your travel party that will be dining should be included in your reservation. This way, the dining location plans for a table large enough to accommodate your entire party. The great news is that children under the age of three will not be charged for dining. Even though they will not be charged for dining, they still do need to be included on the reservation. Once inside the dining location, Cast Members will happily seat you in a comfortable area. They also will bring over a highchair for your little one.

    I do recommend trying to update your reservation so that the restaurant can appropriately plan for your travel party. You can attempt to modify your dining reservations online. You could also stop by the restaurant hostess stand and alert them that you have a toddler. Just explain that you didn’t realize you should have included them on your reservation. It may take a few minutes, but they likely will be able to accommodate you.

    I hope that you have a fantastic time!

    See you real soon!
