    Are children free up until their 3rd birthday free? Or can they be 3 years and 11 months and still considered free? I have 2, 3 1/2 year old children.

    Hi Brigit!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Children who are under the age of 3 do NOT need tickets to visit the Walt Disney World theme parks. However, once a child turns 3, they will need to purchase a valid ticket (for ages 3-9) to enter. Tickets can be purchased online and also through the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    While you're making plans for your little Mousketeers, be sure to check out this Planning Guide for Preschool Kids. It is full of things that your children are bound to enjoy on their trip to Walt Disney World!

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
