    We have a 2-year old and need to make a dining reservation for us and our other children. Do we need to include our 2-year old in the reservation (since it charges per person)?

    Hi Jeffrey!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask a great question about one of my favorite Disney Topics;  FOOD!  I love to say that calories don't count at Walt Disney World so that I can enjoy all the amazing food and yummy snacks without the guilt of ruining my diet.  I hope you enjoy your trip.

    When making Advanced Dining Reservations online you will need to include your 2 year old in the head count.   Disney asks that you do this so they can seat you at a table large enough to accommodate your entire party including your little one in a high chair or booster seat.   When you go to book a meal that requires pre-payment such as Cinderella's Royal Table you will be asked to pick which Guests from your My Disney Experience Account will be joining you.   When you add your two year old as a Guest the computer system will recognize she is under three and she will not be charged.  

    I hope this has helped to answer your inquiry today.  Please pop in again anytime you have another question.   Helping fellow Guests is what we enjoy most.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
