    We are traveling with a 4 and 2 year old and wanted to find out if we need to include the 2 year old on dinner reservation number. I can’t remember what we did when we took her brother at 1 and a half.

    Hi Janet,

    Your children are at such wonderful ages! It is a real treat to travel to Walt Disney World Resort with preschoolers. The magic is real for them. You must be so excited about your family's upcoming trip. 

    As you are making advance dining reservations for your family, do include both your children in the number of people dining. Even though you will not be charged if your two-year-old enjoys food from the buffet or from your plate at table service restaurants, you should still include her in your reservation count. That way your family will be assigned a table that is large enough to accommodate all four of you. 

    So, where are you planning to dine with your little ones? Will you be schmoozing with princesses at Akershus Royal Banquet Hall or chatting with chipmunks at Garden Grill Restaurant? Breakfast with Winnie the Pooh and friends at The Crystal Palace is typically a big hit with preschoolers (and their adult companions.) If you need any additional suggestions for where to dine, just let us know. 

    So, get your children's autograph books and a camera ready. I wish you many magical memories.

    Sending pixie dust your way,
