    I’m getting ready to make reservations. We are a party of 7 adults, 5 children ages 4-8 and one infant needing a high chair. Do we make reservations for 12 and just ask for a high chair when we get there or do we make reservations for 13.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Eric. We love when you stop by!

     A visit to the Walt Disney World Resort with a big group is sure to be BIG fun. My extended family of 14 enjoyed a visit together a few years ago, and we had an absolutely magical stay! Our favorite time together was definitely meal time. We took a break from our pixie-dusted adventures every day for a Table-Service meal, and it was the perfect opportunity for some downtime.

     To answer your question, you'll need to make your dining reservations for a party size of 13. While the infant may not order a meal, it's important that the dining location have an accurate count for the total number of Guests in your group. There's no need to make a request for a high chair at the time you make the reservations, though. You may simply make the request when you arrive!

     As a mom of three, my top priority when dining with kiddos in tow is entertainment. For that reason, I especially love Character Dining Experiences. These unique meals are super great because my family enjoys delicious food AND the fabulous company of beloved Disney Characters! I also love dining locations that are naturally entertaining, like Sanaa with it's incredible views of the Sunset Savanna and Coral Reef Restaurant with panoramic views of a 5.7 million gallon aquarium. 

     I hope this was helpful, Eric. Please let me know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
