    When making meal reservations, should i include my 2 year old in the amount of people?

    Hi Alicia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you have an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    When making dining reservations, you will need to include your 2-year-old in the total number for your dining party. Although Guests under the age of three are not charged at Character Dining experiences or Table-Service restaurants when sharing from an adult's plate, the restaurant will need to have a table available that can accommodate your entire dining party and also maintain standards for capacity and fire safety.

    Guests may begin making dining reservations 180 days in advance by calling (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463, by going online or via My Disney Experience mobile app. If you've not done so already, I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app in order to manage your vacation plans, view attraction wait times and book FastPass+ selections and dining reservations while on the go.

    I hope this information is helpful, Alicia. Let us know if you have any additional questions or would like dining recommendations. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip!

    Bon Appétit,
