    Are small children allowed at all restaurants at WDW? I will be traveling with a 1 year old, and I don't want to upset other guests at a high end place. Also should I include him in the reservation since he will need a spot, but will not be eating?

    Hi Hollis,

    What a great question! My children have been dining at Walt Disney World since they were two and four. They have eaten at the California Grill since they were about that age and we were never discouraged from bringing them to this restaurant. I will tell you my youngest once acted up at another signature restaurant and my husband immediately took her home to bed.

    There really are no restrictions except at Victoria & Albert's which requires diners to be 10. We took my nephew when he was nine months old to the Flying Fish Cafe and did not have an issue.

    You will need to include your one year old in the reservations as this is a safety issue. He can eat off of your plate for no charge or you can order him a meal.

    Also, there may be a dress code at a signature restaurant so dress appropriately.

    Wishing you a magical day!
