    My child is turning 3 in the middle of our trip. We are trying to decide between staying offsite or onsite. Does that make a difference on if we have to buy tickets for them for the days after they turn 3?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Lindsay!

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question! I am so happy to hear that you are planning a magical birthday visit to the Walt Disney World Resort for your little one!

    As the mother of two girls, I highly recommend staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! You will be immersed in the magic during your stay and enjoy great benefits like proximity to the parks and complimentary transportation. In addition, your child’s age at the time of check-in will be considered for ticket purposes during your stay. To book your vacation package including tickets and a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, please contact Disney Resort Hotel Reservations at (407) 939-1936.

    Lindsay, did you know that Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can surprise a loved one with an in-room celebration? Disney Floral & Gifts can help you create memories you will cherish forever with a gorgeous gift or celebration basket. Contact a Dream Maker Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST by calling (407) 939-4438 and they will be glad to assist you!

    I hope this information is helpful, Lindsay! Come back to visit us soon for more tips and advice as you plan your Disney vacation!

    Best magical wishes,
