    We are foster parents to 3 children, 1 special needs. Are there any discounts available for the children in foster care?

    Hello, Cathy!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful you want to share the magic of Disney Parks with your foster children! I remember my Mouseketeer's first visit and his excitement to ride the Walt Disney World Railroad. My son also has special needs, and I love that my Mouseketeer can be part of the magic right along with us, as there are Services for Guests with Disabilities. There are attraction vehicles that allow him to remain in his push stroller/wheelchair and buses, monorails and most water craft are easily accessible.

    For theme park admission, the distinction is by age. For Mouseketeers under the age of three, you do not need to purchase an admission ticket. However, Guests ages 3-9 and 10+ must purchase a ticket to gain admittance. Keep in mind that ticket admission prices vary with when you visit and the number of days purchased. Tickets can be purchased via the My Disney Experience mobile app, online, or once you arrive on property. We like to buy our tickets in advance so we can reserve up to three FastPass+ experiences per day in one park up to 30 days in advance and up to 60 days when staying at select Disney Resort hotels. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions. Wishing you many magical memories with your family!
