    Hello, if the sixth person in the dining plan is a non-payer (age 2) and will sit on my lap, does she still count as a sixth person in regards to tipping and seating?

    Hi Kristin!

    Even though your little one does not pay for meals since they are under 3, they still need to be counted as a seat to comply with the safety fire code in the restaurants.  When making dining reservations, you will need to include every person in your group.  

    Tipping for your little one is entirely up to you.  We typically add a little extra for our babies because they still get service as far as drinks and tableware to eat off of our plates.  The servers are always extremely bubbly and fun with our kids, so we like to give a little something for them.  The servers probably don't expect anything since you aren't paying for them.

    Have a magical day!
