    Hello! We will be traveling in April with our daughters family. One of the girls is only 2 so we will not have a admission ticket. When making character dining reservations do I make a reservation for her? Cinderella Castle and Akershus. Thank you@

    Hi Debbie!

    You are getting ready for an incredible Walt Disney World Resort vacation and it will be extra special because you are going with multiple generations of your family! As you said, Guests who are under 3 years old are considered special Guests of Mickey and will receive complimentary admission into the theme parks. While this means they won't need theme park tickets or FastPass+ reservations, you will want to consider her while planning other aspects of your trip.

    When you are making dining reservations, you will want to include all Guests who will be attending the reservation, including the littlest Mouseketeers. So even though your granddaughter is only 2 years old, you will want to include her in the total number of Guests when you make your reservation. This will ensure that you have a table large enough to accommodate your entire family comfortably. In my experience traveling with my own two little guys, it's always nice to have a large table with plenty of room because it helps to make a vacation meal a relaxing experience because everyone has their own space!

    Be sure to consider adding Memory Maker to you trip so you can capture and save all of the magical memories you make together! Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
