    When making dining reservations do children in high chairs (under 2) count towards reservation number?

    Hello Maya,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Traveling with a little one is so much fun. While they won't remember all of the magical moments, you will remember every smile, giggle, and squeal of delight!

    As an added bonus, children under 3 enter the parks and dine for free. Even if you plan to have your child share off of your meal, you'll still want to include them in your dining reservations. That way you'll be seated at a table with enough space for every guest, and a high chair will be waiting for you. 

    I love character dining at this age. Most of the meals are all you care to enjoy with plenty of options to please everyone, and you can get some special character moments without having to spend time standing in line. It's also a good way to test the waters to see if your little one is frightened or delighted by characters. Don't worry, Mickey and all of his pals are great at interacting from a distance with children that may be a little more tentative. 

    Bonus Tip: You may already know this, but each park has a Baby Care Center. It's a quiet, air conditioned oasis that is perfect for feeding your little one, changing an outfit or diaper, or just taking a quiet break for a few minutes.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
