    We are looking to come to Disney World in May. Our son is currently 9, but will be turning 10 before our arrival. Do we need to purchase his ticket as a 9 year old or as a 10 year old if we buy them before his birthday?

    Greetings Stephanie!

    May is just around the corner.  You must be getting so excited about your upcoming vacation!

    When you're purchasing your tickets, you will need to purchase them based upon the age of each guest on your date of check-in.  So, if your son will be 10 the day you check into your resort, you'll need to purchase an Adult (Age 10+) ticket.

    Thanks so much for coming to see us!  We love answering anything and everything about planning your magical vacation.  Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
