    Does a two year old need to be added to dining reservation?

    Howdy fellow Texan, Debra!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so excited you're gEARing up to plan your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! I truly believe nothing is more special than seeing Walt Disney World Resort through your little Mouseketeer's eyes. The excitement and wonderment they feel is pure magic!

    Mouseketeers under the age of three eat for free at Walt Disney World Resort Restaurants. They do need to be included in your dining reservation because the restaurants need to know exactly how many Guests to accommodate in your party. This way, they can make sure there is room for high chairs or booster seats if necessary, making it comfortable and safe for you and your family, along with the Cast Members serving at the Walt Disney World Resort restaurant. 

    If you need to change your dining reservation to include your little one, you can call and speak with a Cast Member at Dining Reservations and they will be happy to assist you. You can also try adding your Mouseketeer on the dining reservation by using your My Disney Experience Mobile app. Once you are logged on to your account, locate and click on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the app. You will then see details about your account and select "My Plans." Scroll down until you find the dining reservation that needs to be changed, click on it, and you will see "Update Party." You can choose to add your little one to it if it is available to be updated. Dining reservations can go quickly, so I would update your party as soon as possible. I hope you and your family have the most delectable and delightful meals together!

    Debra, here's to enjoying delicious Disney snacks and making magical memories!
