    Do I need to purchase a park pass for a child that is 23 months old?

    Hi there, Donna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so glad you stopped by with your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  What fun you will have experiencing Walt Disney World Resort with a little one…. I have some of the most incredible memories from our visits to the theme parks when my boys were that age!  Anytime you visit Walt Disney World it’s a magical experience but seeing it through the eyes of a little one is extra special.  Even if they won’t remember it, you will!

    Theme park tickets are required for children ages three and up, so you will not need to purchase a ticket for the little Mouseketeer in your travel party!  Children under three can also eat free in the Disney restaurants when they share from your plate or join you at the all-you-care-to-eat dining experiences. While you won't have to pay for infants and young children, please be sure to include them in any advanced dining reservations you make.  This ensures you have enough seats reserved for your party and helps the restaurant know their exact numbers for safety reasons.

    As your planning continues, be sure to check out this guide filled with lots of information about making the most of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation with little ones!  Don't forget to purchase Memory Maker prior to your trip so that you are guaranteed to bring all those special memories home with you!
