    At what age does a child need to have a ticket/hopper pass? I see where it says 10+, but what about under 10?

    Hi Marla. Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and sharing your question with us.

    Walt Disney World Resort offers a variety of ticket options. Children under the age of 3 do not need a ticket. Children ages 3-9 are one price and everyone 10+ is another.

    For Theme Park Tickets, you will select the number of days you will be visiting the theme parks, followed by the dates of your vacations and then the number of tickets needed for you and your traveling party.

    There are 1-Day Value Tickets as well as multi day tickets for each of the 4 Theme Parks and you can add the Park Hopper option to either. The Park Hopper includes same-day admission to all 4 theme parks. For just a few dollars more, you can add Park Hopper Plus. Park Hopper Plus not only includes same-day admission to all 4 theme parks but also includes visits to a water park or other fun activities including: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, Disney's Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf Course or Disney's Winter Summerland Miniature Golf Course.

    Our first visit to a Disney Water Park was just a couple of years ago and now the water parks are a must do during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. If you are considering spending more than one day in the water parks, you might consider a Water Parks Annual Pass. The Water Parks Annual Pass price is currently the same for ages 3+ and may be a great value for you depending on your plans.

    You have so many ticket choices to choose from. Select what works best for you and have a great time planning your vacation.

    Thanks again for your question and let us know if there is any other information we can provide to help add some pixie dust to your vacation!
