    What is the difference between what a 2 year old can do vs. a 3 year old? My daughter will be turning three during our vacation, if I book her age as 2 she gets in free but will she be able to do everything a 3 year old could?

    Hi Kimberly!

    If your daughter is two when you check in, she will be considered two for the length of your vacation when it comes to dining and park entrance. In other words, she can eat for free at the buffet restaurants and get into the theme parks for free.

    If you are interested in something like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, which requires that children are at least three years of age, then she will be able to participate in this experience once her birthday has passed and she has turned three. In other words, once she has had her birthday, she will be able to do anything that another three year old can do even though she is booked as a two year old on your reservation.

    I hope this helps! Best wishes for your princess as she celebrates her birthday at Disney World!
