    Do children 1 and under need tickets to enter any of the parks at Disney World?

    Hello, Tiffany! I'm so glad you've stopped by to chit-chat about your Walt Disney World vacation next summer. 

    I think you'll be very happy to know that Guests under the age of 3 are special Guests of my pal, Mickey Mouse. Because of this, they actually do not need theme park tickets to enter any of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks. I absolutely loved this when my daughter was little. It was such a nice little money saver. Because kids under the age of 3 do not need theme park tickets, you won't need to make a park pass reservation for them either. When you go to enter the Walt Disney World Theme Park that you are visiting, you'll just scan your ticket and carry your child in with you. There is no age verification or anything, it's a very easy process. 

    Another great thing about visiting Walt Disney World with a little one is that kids under the age of 3 can also eat for free at certain Walt Disney World restaurants. At all-you-care-to-enjoy places like Chef Mickey's or 'Ohana, your little one can have as many of his or her own plates as they'd like. At restaurants where you'll order a single entree from a menu, your under the age of 3 child can plate share with whomever for free. If you'd like to order your baby his or her own plate, only then would you need to pay. You are also able to bring in outside food and drinks for your baby to enjoy. Little ones can be so picky and not eat very much so if you'd rather save a little money and bring in a snack for them you are more than welcome to do that. 

    I hope this helps in your planning, Tiffany. If you have any other questions along the way, please feel free to swing back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
