    When I made my dining reservations I did not count my toddler (2 years old) since he will require a high chair and is not part of the dining plan. So my reservations are for 4 people and not 5. Will this cause an issue once we get there?

    Hi Melissa,

    You will probably have to wait a little longer than normal when you arrive at check in to each restaurant as cast members have planned for a party of 4 with no high chair.  It's been my experience that they do a great job at accommodating guests, but a party of 5 with a high chair usually requires a larger table -- it's not just a matter of adding a chair. 

    If I were in a similar situation, the first thing I would do would be to try to make new reservations for a party of 5.  Do that BEFORE canceling any existing reservations.  If you're unable to make any changes, I recommend you arrive at least 20 minutes early to each restaurant and be prepared to wait.  You may want to bring some raisins, crackers or other small snacks for your little one to help pass the time and keep his hunger in check.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!
