    Hello there, we will be making our first disney world trip this summer and it’ll be 2 adults and 2 kids (6 year old and 2 year old) I was wondering if for the fast pass since we were told our little one wouldnt need a ticket if he could also be included?

    Hi Karla,

    Absolutely! Children under the age of three are considered Guests of Mickey himself, and while they don't need a ticket to enter the theme parks, they'll be able to take advantage of the FastPass+ system with their families. As long as your Mouseketeer meets any attraction height requirements, he'll simply enter the FastPass+ queue with an adult in your party who has a valid FastPass+ selection. If there's an attraction that he's either not tall enough for or just isn't quite ready for, feel free to take advantage of the Rider Switch service.

    Since this is your first visit, I have some additional tips for you! First, I'd encourage you to take full advantage of the FastPass+ service. Choose three attractions or experiences per day beginning 60 days in advance if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel or 30 days ahead of time if you're staying elsewhere. Once you've enjoyed those experiences, you may use the My Disney Experience app or an in-park kiosk to add additional selections, one at a time, until the parks close. This will save you a TON of time waiting in lines! Also, did you know that there are some really fun planning videos available to watch? Finally, advanced dining reservations are highly recommended and may be made beginning 180 days before you arrive. You'll be surprised how quickly some restaurants fill up, so I recommend making your selections as early as possible!

    I hope your family has a truly magical vacation, Karla!
