    When making dining reservations, do I need to include an infant in the total number?

    Greetings Kelsey and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is coming up soon- you must be getting so excited! You are smart to get your dining reservations made before your vacation.  Getting a table at some dining locations, especially character dining, without a reservation can be very challenging.

    When you make your reservations make sure and include every member of your party, even the youngest members. This allows the Disney Dining folks to make sure your space is adequate for everyone. Most (if not all) Table Service locations do not allow strollers in the dining area, and therefore, you will need a high chair or sling for your baby carrier. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    See ya real soon,
