    Hi Crystal! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! Disney determines the age of a guest based on the first day of your Magic Your Way Package or resort stay. Therefore, if your daughter is two years old on the day you check in, you will not need to buy her a ticket.

    Since you are visiting with a preschooler, make sure to check out the Walt Disney World Preschooler Guide. You can also look for attractions based on "age interest" and you can select "preschooler". This will help you find all of the great attractions your little one will love and can ride.
