    I will be visiting with 4 adults and 2 two year olds. We booking our stay and tickets separately but want to reserve dinners together. Is that possible? Also, will the children under 3 be counted for the gratuity at table service and buffets?

    Hi Marie,

    You can certainly dine with two parties. The number of guests on your meal reservations does not need to match the number of guests on your room reservation.

    When you make your meal reservations, simply make the reservation for the total number of people in the group, including the children (the restaurant will need to have room for them too.)

    It doesn't matter who makes the reservation, but you should be aware that some restaurants at Walt Disney World require a credit card number to hold a reservation. If you no-show for these meals, then a $10 per person penalty will hit the credit card.

    Disney does assess an automatic 18% gratuity at table service restaurants for parties of six or more. Everyone at the table is included in the guest count, including children under age three.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
