    If we book our trip for 12/28 - 1/4 and our son turns 3 during the trip, should I be booking for 2 adults and 1 child age 2 or 1 child age 3? Does a 2yo ride free, eat free? this is our first family trip. i want it to be perfect!

    Hi Lindsey!

         What a way to ring in the New Year!!!  You should be thrilled to hear that Walt Disney World considers your son to be the age that he is upon check in.  Soooo, in your case, this means that he is two and FREE!  While he will be given free admission to the parks, his food is technically not free.  If you order anything for him off of a menu, he will have to pay for it like anyone else.  However, unlike older kids, he can eat off of your plate at a buffet or sit down restaurant.  They will even bring you an extra plate if you ask.  Have an amazing New Year's Eve, Birthday celebration and first Disney vacation!!!

    Much pixie dust,
