Mother and son on Carousel

    Hello I'm trying to link my reservation to MY Disney Experience. It shows all 4 of us under my family and friends but under theme park tickets and passes it only shows my Hubby and I and our 3yr old. My 1yr old is not listed. Should he be?

    Hey there, Megan! I'm glad you've stopped by planDisney to ask your question. 

    Guests under the age of 3 are actually special guests of my pal, Mickey Mouse, and don't require theme park admission to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. I'm certain this is the reason you aren't seeing your 1 year old listed under the theme park tickets section of your MyDisneyExperience account. They shouldn't actually have a ticket attached to their name so there is nothing to list there. It's actually a good thing you aren't seeing your 1 year old listed there, it means you didn't overpay and accidentally purchase an extra ticket! 

    Did you also know that children under the age of 3 can eat for free at Walt Disney World? It's just another reason I loved visiting when my daughter was that small. Kids that age tend to not eat very much anyway and I hated the thought of paying for a full meal for her only to pick at it. Just another reason that Walt Disney World is a great choice for families with small children! At all-you-care-to-enjoy meals, like Chef Mickey's, your under the age of 3 child is free to have as many of his or her own plates that they care to eat. At restaurants where you pick a single entree off of a menu, your under the age of 3 child is welcome to plate share with anyone at the table with no additional cost to you. If you wish to order your child his or her own meal off of the menu to enjoy, only then would you be required to pay for the meal. You are also welcome to bring outside food and drinks for your small child to enjoy instead of giving them something off of the menu. I just think that's such a great thing that Disney allows. It really keeps costs down, especially when little children don't really consume all that much. It was something I really appreciated when my daughter was that small. Even though you don't need a park ticket for your little one, keep in mind that when you are making dining reservations you should include them in the total count of people that will be dining at a particular restaurant. Florida law only permits so many people inside of a restaurant at one time, paying or not. This will greatly 
    help the restaurant prepare for your arrival and minimize your wait time if the entire party is included on the reservation. 

    Megan, I know you are in the planning phase of your Walt Disney World vacation for next spring and may have other questions. If I can help answer any of those throughout the year, please come back and ask me. I'd love to help.

    Happy planning!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

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
