    The child policy is 3, but what exactly does that mean? The day my child turns 3, he has to pay or is it 3 and under so he's free until he's 4? Thank you!

    Children UNDER the age of three get free admission to the Walt Disney World theme parks. So, babies, one-year-olds and two-year-olds are free. Once the child is three years old, you would need to purchase an admission ticket for him or her to enter the parks. You can see HERE on the Disney website that children 0-2 are free, children 3-9 pay a child rate, and everyone age 10 and over pays the full adult price for tickets.

    There are similar policies regarding dining at WDW. Children UNDER the age of three can eat free from their parents' plates at many WDW restaurants, but after they turn three, they will need to pay for all meals.

    Hope this helps.
