    My daughter is 18 months old, does she have to pay to be in a resort?

    Hi Almarie!

    I'm a toddler-mom too, and some of my favorite parenting memories so far have happened at Walt Disney World Resort. Be honest, who is more excited about your upcoming Disney vacation: you or your daughter??

    I'm happy to share that children under the age of three years old are welcome to join in on all of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation reservations at no additional charge to your total bill. Even though she won't require a ticket or raise your Disney Resort Hotel room bill, you will need to add her to your resort hotel room list, so go ahead and make a profile for her in your friends and family list in your My Disney Experience Account. She'll even receive her very own MagicBand! (Pro Tip: She won't need to wear it or even bring it to the parks, but she'll get one so she can match the rest of her Ohana.)

    Children under the age of three are not required to buy into a Disney Dining Plan with the rest of the family, but she will need to be counted as a person occupying a chair at all of your advanced dining reservations. And since she won't need a theme park ticket, she also won't require any FastPass+ reservations for attractions where she does measure up.

    Bonus Tips: Disney's Baby Care Centers are family friendly zones that have back up supplies of everything littles need in emergencies, as well as provide a cool and relaxing environment to change a diaper or take a break. And don't forget about Disney's Rider Switch!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Almarie!
