    If my child turns 3 during our trip, is he still free?

    Greeting Sherri, and welcome to planDisney!

    I am thrilled to hear that you will be celebrating your little Mouseketeer’s birthday during your upcoming trip. You will also be able to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort too!

    I am happy to tell you that your little Mouseketeer is considered to be a special guest of Mickey Mouse when they arrive. Guests of Disney do not age during their visit, so your little one will remain his guest during your entire trip. You do not need to purchase a ticket or make park pass reservations for children under 3. However, you must include them in your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation and also all dining reservations. Be sure to stop by Guest Relations and pick up a birthday celebration button for your Mouseketeer to wear during your celebration. They are free and Cast Members and other Guests will help him celebrate.

    While you are enjoying the World’s Most Magical Celebration, I recommend checking out Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection. Be on the lookout for these 50 golden statues of your favorite Disney Characters in all 4 theme parks. Since you will be making lots of core memories, I would suggest purchasing Memory Maker. This will allow Disney’s PhotoPass Photographers to capture all the magical moments during your vacation. Your purchase includes unlimited downloads of your photos for up to 45 days from the date they are taken. You can share, print, and post your memories to share with your friends and family.

    I hope this helps with your planning, if you have any more questions, please come back and visit us here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
