    We have reservations at Chef Mickey’s on 10/4 at 10:30. Four adults and a 1 year old will be going. I didn’t add the 1 year old to the reservation when I made it because I did not know if she counted towards the total. Is this right?

    Hi there, Katie! Welcome back to planDisney! 

    It looks like you've been planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation for a while now - can you believe it's almost here? Before you know it, you and your family will be feasting with Mickey and his pals at one of the most lively dining experiences in the World. I'm so excited for you!

    Katie, your little Mouseketeer will have a blast at Chef Mickey's. It's so full of energy and fun, and I just know she'll get a kick out of seeing Mickey and the gang all dressed up in their chef outfits (and who are we kidding, we grown-ups love it, too!). While your little one eats for free as a special Guest of Mickey Mouse, she does need to be included in the count for your total party. You can try to modify your reservation right in the My Disney Experience app on your phone. Just click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of your screen, then on the "My Plans" tile on the next page. When you see your Chef Mickey's reservation, click on that and look for the pencil icon with the word "Modify" to update your party size. If you get a notification that no times are available, go ahead and "x" out of that page without changing it so you don't lose your reservation. You can then either call Guest Relations to see if you can change your party, or let the Cast Member at the host podium know that you will have a child under age 2 with you when you arrive at the restaurant. They'll be happy to help you make sure your little one is accounted for.

    I have one more tip for you as the mom of a Disney kid myself. During a busy day in the theme parks, be sure to seek out the Baby Care Centers for just about anything your tiny princess could need. You'll find high chairs, changing tables, extra supplies you might have forgotten, and a quiet space to nurse or just take a breather before getting back to the fun.

    I hope this helps your family have a truly magical vacation, Katie! Please don't hesitate to come back with any last-minute questions as your trip gets ever closer. We're always here to lend a helping hand!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
