    Do kids 3 and under need tickets? I know they are free but do they still need a physical ticket? I'm trying to plan our fast pass and it won't let me include them because I don't have a ticket linked with them.

    Hello Ranae!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Before my little boy turned 3, I scheduled 3 Walt Disney World Resort Vacations to take advantage of the fact that he was granted free admission to the 4 Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks and 2 Water Parks.

    Children under 3 do not require a ticket at all.  As long as they are with an Adult that is granted admission with a valid Theme Park Ticket, the child under 3 is allowed to enter as well.  

    The same goes for FastPass+ selections. During a FastPass+ selection window, simply scan the ticket or MagicBand of the Adult, simply inform the Cast Member that your child is under 3 and they will get to experience the attraction (as long as they meet the height requirements for the attraction). 

    Another example of the Endless Magic provided during a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation is that when you book a stay at a resort hotel, you child under 3 will still receive their own MagicBand to wear.  My son was adamant about being able to wear and scan his MagicBand like Mommy, Daddy and Big Sister, even though very little was linked on it as he was under 3.

    be sure to look into the countless attractions, entertainment, and experiences suited for young children at all of the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks.  You may want to consider Memory Maker to ensure that Disney PhotoPass Photographers capture the magical moments you share with your little one while at the parks.

    Enjoy making Magical Memories!
