    We are bringing our grand daughter to Disney World around her 3rd birthday. We are considering (GASP!) staying off-site. My question is, do we just purchase tickets for her for the days AFTER her birthday? (once she's 3)? would like her bday IN MK.

    Hi there, Angela!

    What a super fun way to celebrate your granddaughter's birthday by taking her on a Walt Disney World vacation!

    Children ages 3-9 are required to have a Park ticket when they enter any of the 4 Major Theme Parks or Water Parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. So, if you travel once she turns 3, you will need to purchase Park tickets for her.

    I hope this helps with your budgeting, Angela! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if we can help with any other questions you have as you continue planning.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
