    Does everyone need a theme park ticket to enter the park? My mom is going on vacation with us but she will not be riding any rides or anything like that.

    Hello, Angelia,

    Thank you for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  How wonderful that your mom is coming with you to Walt Disney World.  I think multi-generational trips are always so wonderful; you'll certainly both make so many magical memories.  Each guest ages 3 and older in your party will need a theme park ticket to enter any of the theme parks, so your mother would need one.  

    Even though she won't be riding any of the attractions, there are still many other options at the theme parks with shows, parades, fireworks, characters, shopping, and dining for her to enjoy. I'm also including a link to attractions that are for all ages and heights, so there may be some that your mom may want to take a look at beforehand to see if she has any interest in trying. 

    Wishing you a magical trip!  Please let us know if we can help with any further questions. -Kara
