    What is the minimum age requirement to purchase a park ticket?

    Hi, Alejandra! 

    I’m so happy to hear you’re planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Exploring the sights and sounds of the parks alongside your little one will be such a magical experience! 

    Children don’t require a paid theme park ticket until the day they turn 3 years old. However, they can still enjoy many attractions, shows, parades and other experiences offered throughout the resort! There are several attractions babies and toddlers are able to ride in the theme parks. If an attraction is advertised as appropriate for “any height,” then it’s safe for even the youngest Guests. Kids ages 2 and under also eat for free at all-you-care-to-enjoy dining experiences, including character meals!

    You may want to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers in the parks if you’ll be exploring with a little one. They provide full-size changing tables, high chairs, baby food prepping areas and private nursing spaces. There are also some items available for purchase there, like diapers, wipes, pacifiers, formula, sunscreen, some over-the-counter medications and other essentials.

    I hope this information helps, Alejandra, and that you have a perfectly pixie-dusted visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Please feel free to ask more questions as you continue to plan.

    Wishing you magic,
