    We are visiting Magic Kingdom with myself, my husband, and our (then) 1-year-old daughter. When making reservations, do I make them for 2 or 3? I'm confused since I wasn't to make a reservation for her to get into the park.

    Hey there, hi there Heather!

    Sounds like you are in for a magical vacation. Your daughter may not be old enough to remember her first trip to Walt Disney World, but you will, and you'll make some priceless memories!

    When you make your dining reservations, make them for three. You'll be able to select the names and ages of all of your guests. This way, you'll be sure to be seated in an area with enough space for your whole party. You'll also be able to request a high chair. 

    This is the perfect time to take advantage of character dining locations. Your child will be able to dine from the buffet or be given a plate for family style meals. Even better, right now characters keep socially distant. With the new modifications to character dining, she'll be close enough to see her favorite pals and wave to them, but they won't come to the table, which can be overwhelming for some children. Some of our favorite dining experiences include Chef Mickey's, Hollywood & Vine, and Garden Grill Restaurant.

    Be sure to stop at Guest Relations in any park or at the Front Desk of your Disney Resort Hotel and ask for a First Visit Button. It's a memorable keepsake, and cast members love welcoming first time guests to Walt Disney World!

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

Meet the Panelist: Diane, Georgia

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
