    We will be getting to Disney the same day my son turns 3. Do we need to buy a ticket for him?

    Hello Tim!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a very good question. You must be excited about celebrating your little one at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Your son will be 3-years-old for the duration of your whole visit, so you must purchase him admission tickets. Remember that there are additional special products and prices available for Florida Residents.

    You are going to have a magical time celebrating your little Mouseketeer’s birthday! Don’t forget to ask for a special birthday button at the entrance of all four theme parks so that everybody can celebrate with him. I also suggest making a special character dining reservation, and I am sure your son will have a lot of fun at Chef Mickey’s to celebrate with Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Goofy, Donald Duck and Pluto. How about an adventurous meal at Tusker House Restaurant with Safari Donald Duck and friends? One of our family favorites is also breakfast with Lilo and Stitch at the delicious ‘Ohana.

    Please note that advanced dining reservations are highly recommended and you can make them online, with the My Disney Experience mobile app, or you can call (407) WDW-DINE or (407) 939-3463.

    I hope this helps you while planning, and I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to your boy at the place where dreams come true!

    Best magical wishes,
