    Hi there, Erin!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with your question for us today! 

    I’m so happy to hEAR you’re wanting to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth with your Mouseketeer! I love taking my boys to Walt Disney World Resort and seeing the magic through their eyes. 

    Erin, Mouseketeers are required to have Theme Park tickets starting at the age of three. Kids aged 3 to 9 years old are eligible for a child’s ticket. Due to the phased reopening and new procedures, Disney has implemented the Disney Park Pass reservation system to limit theme park capacity in order to keep Guest and Cast Member safety a priority. You would need to make a Disney Park Pass reservation along with having a Theme Park ticket for you and your kiddo. 

    At the moment, the Theme Park Availability Calendar is showing no availability for the date you’re looking to come. I would encourage you to keep looking if your dates are flexible, and if you see availability now, to go ahead and book it. I do see currently the summer months are showing lots of availability beginning in the month of July!

    If you have any questions about planning once you find dates that work for you, your pals at planDisney are all EARS! We can’t wait to see you soon, Erin!
