    When making character dining reservations, do i need to include kids under 3 yrs old?

    Hi Marcia,

    Yes, please include children under the age of three in all of your dining reservations.  It's really about safety.  Disney's mail goal is to take care of even their littlest Guests.

    Restaurant management needs to know how many children are in the restaurant at any given time.  Were any emergencies to occur, the Castmembers would be aware of how many children needed to be accounted for.  Table set up is another reason for needing to know when their young Guests are coming.  Some families come with strollers, and those strollers have certain spaces in the restaurant that are more accommodating.  It's so that walking spaces are kept obstacle free.

    Not including your children in your original reservation could also cause you a delay in getting seated at your reserved time.  You would be seated eventually, but a new table would have to be prepared for you to add the additional person.

    I hope this information helps you, Marcia.  Wishing you a magical vacation!
