    What is the age for needing a park ticket?

    Hi Doreen,

    It's so much fun visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" with a little Mouseketeer! There's just something about seeing the awe and wonder in their eyes that will leave your heart with so many happy memories!

    I'm happy to let you know that all kiddos under age three can stay, play, and dine for free at the Walt Disney World Resort. They won't need a theme park ticket, and if you're dining at a buffet or all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurant, there will be no charge for them. If you're dining elsewhere, they are welcome to share your food, and you'll only need to pay for them if you decide to order them their own meal. If you have kiddos ages 3 - 9, they will require theme park tickets, but there is a reduced rate for children's tickets.

    All of my kiddos began visiting the Walt Disney World Resort when they were itty bitty, and all of them, including my kiddo with autism, absolutely love our time there and feel like it's another home away from home. With wonderful services like Rider Switch and Baby Care Centers, plus dozens of attractions and experiences for Mouseketeers of all ages, you'll surely have a BLAST with your little one!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Doreen, and please feel free to come back and see us again if you have any other questions or would like any specific recommendations for things to do with your Mouseketeer! I hope that you have a truly magical vacation together!
