    When scheduling dining, do I count my one year old in the reservation even though she is "Mickey's guest" and eating off our plates?

    Hi Renee,

    You do need to include all children under the age of three in your Disney dining reservations.  Disney's main goal is to keep even they're littlest Guests safe.

    Management at the restaurants need to know how many children are in the restaurant at all times.  If an emergency were to occur, the Castmembers would be aware of how many kids needed to be accounted for.  Not including the children in your reservation can also cause a delay in getting seated at your reserved time.  You would be seated eventually, but a new table would have to be prepared for you to incude the additional person.

    Wishing you a very magical vacation!  Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question, Renee.
