    My 2-year-old son doesn't require a dining plan, so when making ADRs do I include him in the count or not?

    Hi Julie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to help you plan your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! You are correct that your little Mouseketeer, since he is under 3 years old, will not be on your Disney dining plan. However, you do need to include him in the number of Guests in your party for your dining reservation. This will not impact the number of dining credits required for your meal, but it will ensure that there is plenty of room at your table for your entire group, including your little guy. My youngest son is 2 years old as well and we all have much more comfortable and enjoyable dining experiences during our vacation if my son has his own spot at the table. That way he has room for his own plate for his meal, my lap is free so I can relax during our meal and everyone has plenty of space at the table.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
