    Do I have to buy a ticket for a 2 year old? if not will he be able to get on the rides without a ticket?

    Hi, Erika! Great news! Because your son will be two at the time of travel, you do not have to purchase any tickets for him.  All children under the age of 3 are free. Everyone ages 3 to 9 requires a child's ticket. Anyone 10 and older requires an adult ticket. He will not have any problems getting on the rids without a ticket. As an additional money-saving tip, your son also doesn't have to purchase meals. Guests under the age of three may share from an adult plate at no charge at all meals. When you make your reservations, you should include him in the total, though.  Even though he can share your meal at no cost, he must be counted in the number of people dining.  Walt Disney World uses this number when figuring restaurant capacity in order to comply with the fire marshal's maximum occupancy, and your child counts in that number. Happy planning and have a Magical vacation!
