    How much does it cost for an 8 yr old. I want to take her to Magical Kingdom and it says it is for 10+ years.

    Hi Amy!

    Happy New Year and welcome to 2020! It sounds as if you are about to make an 8-year old very happy with a trip to Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort. I am thrilled to help you plan some magic for her!

    There are a number of different ticket options. If you only plan to visit Magic Kingdom, review the theme park ticket options and select a standard theme park ticket. Once you click on that link, you can select the number of days for your ticket. Next, select the 1 Park Per Day, Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option. With the Park Hopper Option, you can visit more than one park with a one-day ticket. If this is your first visit, you may want to focus your time at Magic Kingdom - we still adore this park and always take a photo in front of Cinderella Castle on Main Street, U.S.A. 

    Once you select the type of ticket you want (1 Park Per Day ticket if you only plan to visit Magic Kingdom), select the date of your visit using the calendar feature. At that point, you should see different ticket pricing for individuals 10-years old and over and children ages 3-9. Use the + feature to add the number of tickets you need per age group. Then you can submit payment for the tickets! If you need assistance, feel free to contact a cast member by phone. Currently, the U.S. number for new tickets is 407-939-7679.

    Now, once you have purchased tickets, be sure to create a My Disney Experience Account so that you can link your tickets to that account and then make Fast Pass+ selections! With Fast Pass+, you can reserve ride times in advance for up to three rides per day in a single park. With valid theme park tickets or an Annual Pass, you can make Fast Pass+ selections up to 30-days in advance of your visit. If you are also staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or other select hotel, you can make Fast Pass+ selections up to 60-days in advance. We ALWAYS use Fast Pass+ because it saves us so much wait time in lines for rides and attractions. On our visit last week, the Fast Pass+ line took us about 15 minutes for Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park while the stand-by line was almost four hours!

    Amy, I would also suggest a character dining experience! Our girls love breakfast at The Crystal Palace (with Winnie the Pooh and pals) and breakfast, lunch, or dinner at Cinderella's Royal Table (with Cinderella and several of her princess friends). Be sure to review the pricing information, review the cancellation policies, and link dining reservations to your My Disney Experience Account. Keep in mind that the website, ticket guidelines and/or Fast Pass+ procedures may be modified in the future to enhance the guest experience, so this information may change.

    Sending pixie dust as you plan! 
    Magic and memories,
