    We are bringing along a two year old and infant on our trip. We purchased tickets for ourselves and our children (their parents) do I need to add them somewhere to our tickets? It only lets you add 10+ guests in the app and associate tickets.

    Hiya, Timothy!

    Welcome to planDisney.  It looks like you're just a few days away from arriving at Walt Disney World Resort with your whole family –– you must be getting so excited!  Our Disney visits are usually a multi-generational affair, too, so I know how much fun it can be when the whole gang gets to come along.  Believe me, you and your family are in for lots of magical memory-making next week!

    Since they won't need a ticket for theme park admission, I like to think of children under age three as Guests of Mickey and Minnie when they visit Walt Disney World Resort!  You won't need to do anything special to register them –– they can come right along with you as you enter the park (just don't forget to pack plenty of snacks and diapers!).  And if you're planning to take advantage of the new Genie+ service during your visit, you're also welcome to bring your little ones through the Lightning Lane for any rides or attractions you'd like (where they meet the height requirements, of course!) without purchasing additional Genie+ access for them.  But while they won't need a ticket,  I do suggest adding your grandchildren to your My Disney Experience account so they can be included in any dining or hotel reservations you might have.  Here's what you'll need to do:

    1. Navigate to the Walt Disney World website and sign in using your Disney Account.
    2. Hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab and select "My Family & Friends" from the drop-down menu.
    3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Add a Guest".
    4. Select the "I'll enter their name and age" option and follow the on-screen prompts to add each child to your account.

    And that's it!  Now your whole family should be connected to your Disney Account for your upcoming visit.

    In addition to tickets, here's another great cost-saving opportunity you can take advantage of when traveling with children under age three. If you're dining at a Walt Disney World Restaurant that offers a buffet or family-style service, like Chef Mickey's or 'Ohana, children two and under can enjoy as much food as they like without paying for an extra meal (although they do need to be included in the total number for your party when making your reservation).  My family loves booking at least one buffet-style meal, especially when we vacation as a large group.  Not only is it wallet-friendly when traveling with tiny people, but it's also a great way to find something on the menu that everyone will enjoy!  

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Timothy.  I'm wishing you and your entire family lots of pixie-dusted adventures during your upcoming Walk Disney World vacation!

    See Ya Real Soon,
