    When making dining reservations, if you have a child under 3 years, do you include that child in the number of people for the reservation, and can the child eat off the mother's plate?

    How ya doin' Deona and welcome to planDisney!

    I don't have to tell you that anyone from the state of Louisiana is going to be worried about one thing above all else when we travel. Food! Even a year in advance of your trip you're talking to me to get the scoop on how to manage Advanced Dining Reservations for your family. Well here comes Fairy GodTaylor to the rescue!

    When booking your Advanced Dining Reservations you'll definitely want to include your little adventure in the number of Guests that will be dining with you. This number has more to do with restaurant capacity than plates on a table so they'll need to know that little darlin' is there. Now if y'all are planning on dining at restaurants where each person can order their own meal, your baby can share with you or another person. 

    Pro-tip: When it's time to make those dining reservations, don't miss Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' in Disney Springs. It definitely checks the boxes of places that suit a Louisiana palate.

    Deona, thanks for stopping by with your question. If you think of any others, please feel free to come back for another chat. I'm happy to help!

    Happy planning!
