    When makin dining reservations, is it neessary to innclude my 11 month old? It seems much easier to get a reservation for 4 as opposed to 5. We don't mind keping him on our laps.

    Hi Christy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Although your 11-month-old will not be charged to eat at a Character Dining experience or all-you-care-to-enjoy dining location, you will want to include your son on your Advanced Dining Reservations. This will ensure being seated at a table that can accommodate your entire travel party. As a family of six, I can attest that we have never encountered any problems in finding availability when booking our Advanced Dining Reservations well in advance. Guests may begin booking Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days in advance, which I highly recommend if you will be traveling during a busier time of the year. I do understand your concern that you will have an odd number of Guests in your travel party, but I have personally dined with four other Guests (five total) and it was not a problem when booking at a Table-Service restaurant. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please don't hesitate to visit us again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Christy!

    Bon Appetit,
