    Is a 1yr old included in room count of people in a resort. We have 5 then 1yr old? Thank you Nina

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donna!

    I’m counting down the days to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation with my husband, our children, and my extended family and I cannot WAIT! As far as I’m concerned, “the more, the merrier” is a great Disney motto, and you are all going to have so much fun together!

    Donna, you say there are a total of six of you: five, plus your one-year-old infant. Even though children under 3 are "Guests of Mickey," they do need to be counted on your resort hotel reservation for occupancy and fire code reasons.

    If you’re making a resort hotel reservation online, you’ll select your dates, the number of adults (Guests 18 and older) and number of children (Guests aged infant to 17). You’ll then see a drop-down menu where you can enter the age of each child. Once you’ve entered that information, the system will search for Walt Disney World Resort hotel rooms that will work for your party size. For example, a 5th Sleeper room at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside or Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort may be good options for your party, as you could potentially have 4 members of your party in the two beds, a child or small teen in the pull-down sleeper, and your infant in a pack 'n play. If you're looking for more space, you might want to look at Deluxe Villa accommodations, which have more of a vacation home feel; the one-bedroom and larger villas even feature kitchens.

    Donna, you may find it easier to call (407) 939-1936 to speak with a Reservations Cast Member. They can help you understand the options available based on your party size and answer any questions you may have. They can also add a note to your resort reservation requesting a pack 'n play or crib in your room for the baby.

    I hope you find the perfect room to fit your needs and that you have so much fun planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. My dear friend Ashley shares her best tips for visiting Disney with an infant in tow in this answer, which I hope you find helpful. I also love this video from Wes, where he shares his tips on visiting with a larger family. Please come back and see us if you have any additional questions!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
