    Hi. I am visiting Disney world in August and I’m starting to make dinner reservations. We are a family of 5 including a 6 year old, 2 year old and a 6 month old. Do I make the reservations for 5 people including the baby or should I make it for 4? Thanks

    Hi Patricia!

    It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical Walt Disney World Resort! Be sure to take advantage of the FastPass+ system during your trip to make the most of your time in the theme park. FastPass+ reservations will allow you to make reservations for three attractions or Character Experiences for each day of your trip. You can begin making your FastPass+ reservations 30 days in advance, or 60 days in advance if you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest, so be sure to make them as soon as possible since reservations are limited!

    When you are making dining reservations for your family, you want to include all Guests who will be attending the reservation, even you little Mouseketeer. By making a reservation for five people, you will ensure that your table has plenty of room to accommodate everyone in your family. We took my youngest on his first trip to Walt Disney World Resort when he was 6 months old and we found that it was incredibly helpful to his own spot at the table so he could sit in a high chair and enjoy his own snack or play with toys while everyone enjoyed a nice meal!

    If you are having challenges making reservations, I recommend that you keep checking restaurant availability as your trip approaches. I have found that reservations often become available a day or two in advance as Guests are finalizing and updating their plans while they are on vacation. I recommend that you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App for use during your trip as it's my favorite way to make and modify dining reservations during your trip!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning for your vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
