    Hi! I'm planning a trip with 2 adults and 1 child. My child is 2 years old and I have heard that children get in free if they are under 3. Is this true? Do I need proof of her age?

    Hi Jordan. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    I have some exciting news for you! Kids under 3 do get into all of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and Water Parks, with an adult who has valid Theme Park admission, for free. Isn't that fantastic? When my daughter was younger, I was never stopped and questioned about her age when entering any of the parks. However, just to be on the safe side, I would carry some type of documentation just in case. A copy of your child's birth certificate, I am sure, would do the trick. Kids under the age of 3 can also eat at Walt Disney World restaurants free of charge. At all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants such as Cape May Cafe or 'Ohana, children under 3 can eat from the buffet just like everyone else. At restaurants where you order an entree like at The Plaza Restaurant or Yak & Yeti Restaurant your child may eat off of your plate for free. If at this style of restaurant, you wish to order your child his or her own plate of food, only then would it be an additional cost. Isn't that great news? I always loved taking my daughter to Walt Disney World when she was that little. Everything is so magical and you sure can't beat the price. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
