View Full Version : Number in dining party [does infant count?]

Do I have to include my infant in the number of diners? I am certain he will not be ready for a highchair and will be in my lap (or hubby's or nana's) while we eat. Leaving him off our reservation will make us a party of 4, and I'm hoping this makes a table easier to get since everything we want seems to be full.

when you make your ADR's just tell them you will have in infant with you. they will note this on the ADR, but your seating number will be reflected as 4.

If you have the reservation only for four poeple you you will not be able to bring in an infant carrier unless it will fir under the table and you will not be allowed to bring in a stroller as you cannot block an aisle.
If you make the reservation for five, which is what you have, you will have a chair on which you can park the infant carrier, or a chair can be removed and replaced by a high chair or your stroller.

As I wrote, the infant will be in my lap as he has been for almost every meal I've eaten in the past 5 months. He nurses exclusively. We are not bringing an infant carrier, just a stroller which we planned on leaving outside. I have made all our DP reservations as a party of 5. We just need to fill one more slot and can't find a spot for a party of 5 in or near MK.

Whenever I've made a reservation at any restaurant where there's a very small child, I won't add that child into the reservation number, but I will separately mention it when I'm making the reservation, so the person taking my reservation can make their own decision. Yes, if the child needs a high chair or somewhere to put the carrier or the stroller, then they need to know to make sure there's enough room at the table. If you're absolutely sure that you're not bringing a carrier or stroller or anything and that someone will have the child on their lap at all times, then no, I don't see a need to mention the child at all in the reservation.
