    do you include children under 3 in a dining reservation

    Hi Kathleen and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sounds like you are planning an exciting vacation with a child under the age of 3. Both of my children visited the parks when they were under three and I will never forget how their faces lit up during those trips. I hope you are going to make lots of wonderful memories! You might find this guide to Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones helpful. 

    You do need to include everyone in your dining reservation, even if they are under three and you won't be charged for them. The restaurants need to know how big of a table your party will need and they have to meet occupancy codes. I always enjoy having more than enough room for everyone, particularly when we have a little one who needs a high chair. 

    Kathleen, thank you for stopping by with your question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
