    Hi, If my child turns 3 during the Disney trip, should I buy him a ticket?

    Hiya, Mouseketeer! Welcome to planDisney. 

    The countdown is officially on for your Most Magical vacation! Your great adventure with your little one will be here before you know it. So, let’s get right into your question. 

    Once your toddler turns 3 years old, he will need a theme park ticket. Guests between 3 and 9 years old will need a child-priced ticket. However, annual passes are the same price for all Guests aged 3 and older. 

    At the age of 3, my little ones really started to enjoy the grand scheme of Walt Disney World. They now have favorite characters who they look forward to saying hello to, attractions that they must ride during every visit, and snacks like Mickey Premium Ice Cream Bars that they can’t wait to get their hands on. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: For the days leading up to your kiddo’s birthday, little ones aged 2 and under can eat for free at All-You-Care-To-Enjoy restaurants like Hollywood & Vine and ‘Ohana. I love that because when my little ones were very young they didn’t eat nearly as much as they do now. 

    I hope that you’ve found this answer helpful. If you need more suggestions about all of the amazing experiences that Walt Disney World Resort has for little ones, revisit us here at planDisney. I’m all ears! 

    Magic always,
