    My family is planning/budgeting for Feb '18. We will be a party of 9 that includes 2 infant who won't be eating. Should we include them in the number for reservation and is the 18% added regardless of the number of guests actually ordering?

    Hi Anna!
    Wow, it is so awesome that you and family are planing a February 2018 Walt Disney World vacation. Yes, you should include the children in your party in the total number of people in your party even if they are infants when you are making your Advanced Dining Reservations because the restaurant needs to know how many guests will be at each table and for the restaurant capacity.  Also it is standard in Walt Disney World for 18% gratuity to be added to the checks of guests who are in parties of 6 or more (it goes by the group size not by the number of people ordering food). I hope that your February 2018 Walt Disney World vacation is filled with magic and memories as well as incredible dining experiences!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
