    Good evening, I have purchased all of our families Disney tickets for children 3 and older but I am wondering how it works for our 2 year old daughter who is free of charge and was not given an actual ticket? Thank you in advance!

    Hi Krystal!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Have you told your kids that you're going to Walt Disney World Resort, or are you planning a super fun surprise reveal?? I'm taking my 2.5-year-old for his third visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth in a week so I'm freshly prepped in preschool plans.

    Children ages 2 and under do not need park tickets, however there are times when they do need to be counted in numbers and other times when they do not. Do go ahead and make a profile for your youngest in your family list of your My Disney Experience account.  You'll include her via this profile when making a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation; she'll even receive a MagicBand to feel like one of the big kids, despite not really needing to use it. (We've always left our sons in our hotel room and it's never been a problem.) You'll include her again with this profile on any Advanced Dining Reservations, even if she's sharing off someone's plate. She'll also be counted as attending any separately ticketed dining events like a dessert party despite not being charged.

    Because she doesn't have an actual park ticket, she will not be included in FastPass+ selections. However, she's still absolutely welcome to enjoy the attractions where she meets the height requirements with those who do have FastPass+ reservations. When its your family's turn to enjoy an attraction, everyone else will scan their MagicBands and she'll be able to walk (or be carried) right through the entry point.

    I hope this helped a bit, and We'll See You Real Soon Krystal!
