    Hi. I made a ADR at be our guest for 4 guests bus now we decided to take our 18 month son too. There is no more available reservation for 5 guests. If we show up at the restaurant with him, will he be allowed to join us? Even if needed to stay in our laps?

    Hi Adriana!

    We're so happy you've stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask us your Walt Disney World Resort planning question. I hope you're having a wonderful time planning your magical vacation.

    Advance Dining Reservations are wonderful, but they can be tricky to change. My first recommendation is just to keep trying. Many times additional reservations open closer to your visit, so you may find one for all five Guests. You may also want to call the Dining Reservation number and have a Cast Member look as sometimes I have had better luck finding reservations through them. 

    If you are still unable, you can show up at Be Our Guest Restaurant and explain the situation to the Cast Member at the front podium. There is no guarantee that they will be able to accommodate, but they will do their best or suggest another time to return. Be advised you may have to wait a little longer if they are able to. Unfortunately, it's not so much a concern of the number of seats available, but rather total occupancy of the restaurant for fire codes and such. 

    Thank you again for stopping by, Adriana, and if there is anything else we are able to assist you with, please don't hesitate to ask. 

    Pixie Dust,
