    Are children 2 and under free into the parks

    Hello DeVry,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. The countdown is on, and before you know it you'll be right in the middle of The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    Traveling with a child under 3 is so much fun. It's true, your little one won't remember any of your visit, but you will. You'll remember each giggle of delight, look of wonder, and even the not so magical moments that we all have from time to time. You'll talk about the trip and look back on photos for years to come. The best part? You don't have to pay for children under 3 to enter any of the Walt Disney World parks. 

    Children under 3 can also dine for free as long as they are sharing your meal. This is a great time to take advantage of character dining. You'll be able to introduce your little one to characters without having to stand in line. In my experience, Mickey and his pals are great about keeping a comfortable distance from little guests who might be a bit nervous about meet & greets. Keep in mind you will want to include your little one in the guest count when making dining reservations. Even though you won't be charged, you will want to make sure that you are seated at a table that has enough space for everyone to dine comfortably.

    Here's another tip for traveling with your little one. Each park has a Baby Care Center. These are comfortable quiet places for feeding, changing a diaper or outfit, or just taking a break from the heat of the day and the excitement in the parks. 

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
