    My family is making it's 1st trip to WDW this June. We live in the UK and plan to pre-buy the 14 day Ultimate Tickets. My son turns 10yrs mid holiday. Should I buy him a child or adult ticket? Thanks.

    Hi Elsa,

    For theme park ticketing purposes, your child's age is the age that he was at the time you checked in to your Disney resort hotel,or the age he was at the time of first use of the the ticket. In your situation, if you son is 9 at the start of your vacation, you can feel comfortable going ahead and buying him a child's ticket. He will be able to use it for the duration of your visit, even if he turns 10 while you're on site.

    Turning double digits while at Walt Disney World, I'm sure that's a birthday he'll remember forever!
