    I've read that if a son turns 3-years old after checkin he doesn't need park tickets. But, what happens when I make a dining reservation, for example - table for 3 (including him) or table for 2 (without him)? Will he eat for free? Even after his birthday?

    Hi Keffel,

    When making Advance Dining Reservations, always include the total number in your party, regardless of the guest's age. This will ensure your table is large enough for your entire party. When dining at a buffet or family-style meal, your son will be able to share from your plate at no additional cost. At "menu" restaurants, you can also share your meal, but will be charged if you order your son an additional item from the menu.

    I hope you'll come back and see us again if you have any other questions Keffel. I'm sure your son is going to have the most magical third birthday ever.
