    Hello, My question is: When booking a dining reservation or speciality cruise what age does a child start to pay adult prices? I have tried to find the answer on the website but struggle when it comes to speciality bookings. Thank you

    Hi Andrew!

    Thanks for your great question. Children 10 and older are considered an adult in Disney terms when it comes to prices for dining and other activities such as specialty cruises. Disney operates on the honor system and no one will ever be asked to provide proof of age. If, by chance, your child turns 10 during your Walt Disney World vacation, the general rule of thumb is to consider him the age he was when you first checked in for your visit. My little granddaughter turned 3 during a recent visit and we double checked this with a Cast Member at the ticket booth outside Magic Kingdom. This recommendation was confirmed and we did not purchase Park Admission for her (since children 3 and under are free.)

    I hope this helps. I also hope you will come back to see us if there is anything we can do to assist with your planning.

    Have a magical day!
