    My fiancé and I have 5 children ages 3-10. How does this work for an annual pass? Can children be put under an annual pass or will there need to be a regular ticket purchase?

    Hi Racheal, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for asking us a question!

    I’ve had an Annual Pass for almost two decades now and I can’t tell you how much I love being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. My husband and son have sometimes had one, sometimes not. I can confirm that, every Guest over the age of 3 needs to have their own Theme Park Ticket. You can’t “bring” an additional Guest into the parks with an Annual Pass. For example, I’m going to be going on my own Disney Parks vacation in a few weeks and I needed to buy a ticket for both my husband and son. You will therefore need to purchase admission for all of your children. 

    Please note that kids under the age of 3 are Mickey’s Special Guests and don’t need a ticket to enter a Theme Park or Walt Disney World Water Park

    I hope my answer helps you plan a magical vacation for you, your fiancé and your entire family. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
