    Dear Disney mom, 1. Is there an admission fee for children below 10? 2. Do you have free access to all rides once you pay the admission fees? 3. would it best to book a tour guide?

    Hi Kimberley!
    Thanks for your question(s) and for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Sounds like you are gearing up for a wonderful trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! There are 3 tiers of theme park admission tickets to consider. First, any guests under the age of two (2) are admitted free of charge. The next level of guest is ages three to nine (3-9), and they will purchase Child tickets. And finally, any guest ages 10+ will need to purchase Adult tickets. Once purchased, Disney theme park tickets include all of the attractions, shows and parades in that particular park. You do NOT pay anything extra.
    You also ask about VIP Tour Services, which is another thing I like about your questions. You know how to roll!!
    I have personally used a private VIP Tour Guide with my girls and we LOVED it. We have used the same Tour Guide several different times on different trips. I will say that whether you use a private Tour Guide or sign up for a specific Tour Service, it is definitely an added expense. I did it realizing it was most definitely a splurge, but I felt because we used the service during a busier time of year that it was definitely worth the value spent. I think it is up to each individual family to consider their budget, family needs, and the like before deciding. If you do decide that it is something you want to pursue, then I wholeheartedly recommend it. You will NOT be disappointed.
    I hope this helps and I wish you all a Magical trip!!
