    When making dining reservations do I count my 1 1/2 year old and 4 month old into the number of guests I reserve for?

    Hi, there!

     Sarah, it sounds like you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. How exciting! It's the very best kind if you ask me. 

     Guests of Disney Resort hotels may make their dining reservations up to 180-days in advance for the entire length of their stay. This exclusive perk really helps with booking hard-to-get reservations like Chef Mickey's Cinderella's Royal Table!

     When you book your dining reservations online, be sure to include everyone in your travel party. It's important that restaurants have an accurate count of the Guests you'll be dining with, even itty bitty Guests! Any dining reservations you make can be managed and modified on My Disney Experience online and on the My Disney Experience mobile app

     I always recommend booking a few Character Dining Experiences when traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with little ones in tow. I love these unique meals because I know my family will enjoy delicious food and the company of beloved Disney Characters, all in one place. What's even better is that children under the age of three can eat for free at the all-you-care-to-enjoy locations like The Crystal Palace and Tusker House Restaurant!

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah. Please let me know if you have any other questions while you're planning your Disney vacation!
