    When making dining reservations do I need to include my 7 month old (who would use a highchair and not actually be eating) in the amount of people dining?

    Hi there, Emilee!

    At the Walt Disney World table service dining experiences, you do want to include your infant in the head count when you book your reservations. This will allow the restaurant to make sure you have a table that offers space for a high chair, and to prepare them for the number of high chairs they may possibly need at any given time. I personally just recently had to change all of the dinner reservations on our upcoming trip when I forgot to include my six month old grandson in the total number of people! 

    And while we are speaking about those tiniest of Mouseketeers, do you know about the fantastic Baby Care Centers? These perfect little places, located in each theme park, offer a comfortable place for parents with little ones. You'll find all the baby essentials available for purchase there, so if you've forgotten something or run out of something, you will likely find it there. There are rocking chairs, changing tables, high chairs, and more. They are really great for taking a break from the bustle of the parks for a bit.

    Have an absolutely magical visit, Emilee!
