    what age is considered an adult? also, what age is a junior?

    Hi Michelle,

    I'm assuming that you are talking in terms of purchasing tickets.  The ticket structure has changed a lot over the years and once upon a time, there was indeed a junior ticket.  In fact, when the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, Adults were ages 18 & up; Juniors were 12 - 17; and children were 3 - 11.

    Today, there are currently two categories when purchasing tickets: Ages 10 & up and Ages 3 - 9.  Children under 3 are admitted free.

    If you are talking in terms of something else, let me know so that I can assist you with that information.  Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
