Car Capacity Sci-fi Diner

I know that the diner has cars with 3 rows that seat 6 however we will be a party of 7; 4 adults and 3 children (11, 7 and 4). I am confident that the 3 kids will fit in the front all together but what I'm wondering is how do I go about booking this.

Would you book for 6 and then ask to squeeze in an extra 7th on the day or do I book for 7 and ask them to sit us all together when they see the size of the little people on the day.

Thanks for your help

Do not book for six. You're a party of seven. If you try to add one at the podium, then you run the risk of having your extra person turned away if the restaurant is full.

Book for seven, when you check in say the kids will sit together in a car.

Book for the actual number otherwise you will throw off everything.

We have booked for 7 and then asked at the podium to let the 3 smallest share a bench seat so that we could be seated in one car.

Thanks for all the replies

It's good to know this is possible, we'll go ahead and book for 7 and then ask to be seated together on the day
