    Do I need to include my 2 year old for a dinning reservation?

    Hi Rebeca! Thanks for dropping by planDisney with your question about dining reservations.

    I loved bringing my toddlers to Disneyland Resort. I think you're going to have the most magical time!

    One of the perks of bringing a child under the age of 3 is that they are free guests! No theme park admission ticket or theme park reservation is necessary for your little one, and they can eat off your plate for free. However, you'll still want to count them in your dining reservation. That way, there is enough room for everyone at the table, when you arrive, including a high chair if your child needs one. You'll be more comfortable and the Cast Members will be ready to assist you.

    You might consider a Character Dining experience. It's a great way for your toddler to interact with Characters without having to wait in any lines. They're very good at gauging whether to go in for the hug or interact at a little bit of a distance if your little one is still feeling unsure about the whole experience! I'd recommend Goofy's Kitchen in Disneyland Hotel as a great location to meet Goofy and his friends. Serving both breakfast and dinner, they offer a wide range of buffet options for both the young and young at heart.

    Even if your toddler doesn't remember, you will never forget this experience. Be sure to take all the pictures!
