    Hello, I am traveling with my 4 year old and my then 23 month old. Do I need to add my 23 month old to my dinning reservations and the Fast Passes?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kate!

    Sounds like you are well on your way to planning a fantastic family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! I have traveled with my boys to visit Mickey at these exact ages and FastPass+ and dining reservations definitely made our trip go much more smoothly! For your advanced dining reservations, you will need to include all Guests in your party in your reservation, including your little Mouseketeer. This will ensure that there is plenty of room at the table to accommodate your little prince or princess in a high chair or booster seat. I have found that my little guy does much better at restaurants if he has his own space at the table to eat.

    Guests who are 2 years old and under do not require a ticket for the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. As such, you cannot make FastPass+ reservations for them. However, they can still have fun with their family! When you select FastPass+ reservations, you will make reservations for everyone in your party with a ticket. During your trip, you will proceed to the FastPass+ queue and the Cast Member will allow your little one to enjoy the attraction, Character experience or entertainment experience with the rest of your group. My little son still likes to touch his MagicBand, even through he doesn't need to, to the Mickey touch point so he can be just like the big kids!

    Be sure to check out the guide for Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones for some awesome tips. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
