    We will have a party of 13 going in Dec. One is an infant less than 1. Do I make reservations for the infant? And do I break down the party into 2 or 3 groups to be able to book it online? I really don't want to wait for the phone lines to open.

    Hello there, welcome to planDisney Ashli. Thanks for stopping by with your question about including your newest Mouseketeer. 

    A lot of people ask what is the best age to bring your little ones. It’s always a good age at any time. There are accommodations at all of the parks for even the smallest of guests. Baby Care Centers are located in all 4 parks. These special areas are very quiet and will offer rooms to feed with rocking chairs and all the other comforts an infant and parent could need. My favorite part is how quiet they are, gives you and your baby a chance for some sensory relief. 

    All guests under the age of three do not need to make a park reservation as they will always be Walt’s special guests. When you are making reservations for a meal with an infant I would include them in the headcount so the restaurant can make sure they are ready to accommodate your party. If you have a group this large when making reservations using the My Disney Experience App, I would stick to groups of 8 people and smaller. While there are no guarantees both of your parties will be sat together you can surely ask. The Cast Members are usually very accommodating and will make their best effort to accommodate reasonable requests. Sometimes however they will not be able to, and that is only to ensure all the other guests are being taken care of. One recommendation I can make is to stop by your restaurant an hour ahead of your scheduled mealtime. Let the host know you have the two reservations and if at all possible to be sat near each other. This gives them a little more time to see if they can work their magic. 

    I hope this information is helpful for your trip planning. If you need any other tips or advice visit us anytime at

    Have a magical day,
