    Hi Rachael!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Since Walt Disney World is such a popular destination for families with little ones, this question actually pops up more than you'd realize!

    At Walt Disney World, Mickey Mouse counts your little ones age by the day in which you check in. Even though your little Princess is getting to celebrate her 3rd party at Walt Disney World, for reservation purposes she will still be looked at as a two year old. You should put in her correct birth date, but enter her age as 23 months old, since this is her age at check in. This means she will not be included in your Disney Dining Plan and will not require a ticket for entry into the parks.

    I hope this helps clear things up for you. I hope your Mouseketeer has a wondEARful birthday and please let us know if you have any other questions before your trip!

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
