    Do I have to include my one year old son in the numbers of guests for a reservation in a table restaurant ?

    Hi Mariana!

    It sounds like you are planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your little one and I'm happy to help you with our question! There is nothing like enjoying the magic of the theme parks through the eyes of your kids. Be sure to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers at each of the theme parks. They are great places to take care of all of your little one's needs during your visit and get a break from the busy theme park!

    Dining reservations are the best way to ensure you will be able to enjoy the restaurants that are on your "must-do" list. When you are making your dining reservations, you should include all Guests who will be enjoying your meal, even your little one. This will ensure that you get a table that is large enough to accommodate everyone, including your son. We visited Walt Disney World Resort with both of my sons when they were each a year old and we found that we had loved our table service dining experiences because our kids had plenty of room to sit at the table in their own high chair, allowing everyone in the family to enjoy a relaxing meal!

    Be sure to consider adding some Character Dining experiences to your vacation itinerary. I think they are the perfect way to have a tasty meal and to meet some of your favorite Disney Characters, without having to wait in their queues. Also, there are lots of new things headed to the theme parks over the next several months, so you definitely want to follow the Disney Parks Blog as you continue planning for the latest news and announcements about everything you will be able to experience during your trip!

    Come back to see us if we can help you with additional questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
