    We have an infant coming with us on our trip(1 year old in Dec.) in December. When making dining reservations to I have to count her in the party total?

    Hi Michele!

    I'm sure you must be so excited knowing your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is a few short weeks away!  Let me be one of the first to wish your little princess a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    This is a great question and a very popular one right now. It can be a bit confusing. I'm so glad you asked before making your dining reservations.

    When making dining reservations, you do want to include your infant in your count. Unless you specifically purchase a meal for your daughter, your little one will still be able to share with you and dine for free.

    Including her in your count will ensure you have adequate room for everyone at the table. It also helps the restaurant manage capacity for safety and service. Upon check-in, let the seating host or hostess know you have an infant dining with you so they can be sure you have a high chair available at your table.

    You are going to love seeing Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of your little one! If you need any other tips, the Planning Guide for Preschool Kids & Little Ones is filled with oodles of information designed specifically for younger Guests. Enjoy every magical moment!

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you need any other information as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
