    When making a dining reservation should you include infants even though they will not be partaking?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Pam!

    I see that you are headed to The Most Magical Place on Earth very soon--you must be so excited!

    Your question is a great one, so I am glad that you asked! When Guests make Advanced Dining Reservations for Walt Disney World restaurants, they should include everyone in their party in that total count, including infants. Although our littlest princess or prince may not even be sitting in a high chair yet, the number of Guests in that reservation will be included in the total capacity that location is permitted to host at that time. In other words, our littles may not be dining, but they still count. 

    Because you are planning this great trip with an infant in tow, be sure to check out the incredible Baby Care Centers, located at each of the four theme parks. Honestly, on my first trip ever to Walt Disney World, I had a three-year-old and a five-month-old in tow, and these Baby Care Centers were one of the main reasons I fell head-over-heals in love with Walt Disney World. I'm sure you'll love them, too!

    Have so much fun planning all of the details of your trip, Pam. Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
