    Can I make dining reservations for 11 people where one person is an infant?

    Hey, howdy, hey Theresa, and welcome back to planDisney. Dining around "the "World" is one of the best parts of our Disney vacations. We spend a lot of time deciding which Table Service restaurants we want to experience since we all have our favorites. The best times are when we travel with our extended family or friends and introduce them to some of Mickey and Minnie's delicious cooking.

    Yes, you may make a dining reservation for your party of 11 including an infant. Every person, including infants, needs to be counted in the total when making advance dining reservations so everyone has a comfortable space. There are two ways to make dining reservations and be sure your little one is included. First, you can make dining reservations through the My Disney Experience app. Select the number of people (up to 20 people), the date, the restaurant, and finally, the meal or time of day you want to dine. When you search this way you will pull up on the app all the available restaurants and dining times. On the Walt Disney World Resort website, you will select "Make Reservations" under the "Things to Do" drop-down menu at the top. Follow the cues to find all the restaurants that fit your requirements.

    planDisney Pro Tip: When we make reservations for parties of more than eight people we normally need to make two reservations for smaller parties. These reservations are for the same time or nearly the same time. Once we arrive at the restaurant we talk to the the host and ask them if we can be sat together or nearby. Cast Members do the best they can to accommodate. Also, be sure to let them know you will need a high chair if you want one.

    Theresa, I hope this information helps you find the perfect spot and reservation for every member of your party, especially your little Mousketeer. Please write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
