    Hi! My nephew (11 y.o.) is coming to the US from Ukraine and I’m planning to take him to DisneyWorld (two days at two parks) which was his long-term dream. The tickets are pricy and I am wondering if he as a kid from war zone can get some discount? thanks

    Welcome to planDisney, Hanna. I can't answer your question without first acknowledging the trauma that you, and your nephew, must continue to experience in Ukraine. I sincerely hope visiting Walt Disney World provides some much-deserved magical respite, hope, and happy memories!  

    I'm sorry to say that no specific discounts exist for your situation. Please know that I'm committed to making your visit to Walt Disney World a truly enchanting experience. I have some ideas I hope will ensure every moment is filled with magic and wonder.

    I believe you are looking for Stateside ticket purchases (please let me know if not, and I can talk you through some of the European options). You can check out the Special Offers, Deals & Discount page for regularly updated offerings, but right now, I'm not sure anything suits your two-day trip. I think the best option is a Standard Theme Park ticket. Generally, it is cheaper to visit midweek (and quieter in the Parks), so if there is any flexibility in your dates, I can see that visiting for two days starting on the 28 August 2023 would be slightly less expensive. In addition, sticking to one Park per day is the cheapest ticket price. Being savvy in the Parks can also help, like dining at Quick Service Restaurants to lower meal costs.  

    Please download the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. The free services offered on the app really help Guests get the most out of their day. From finding the most up-to-date wait times to virtual queues, it's a helpful little Genie in your pocket.

    There's a ton of information online to help guide a tween through their best Disney day. My top picks are EPCOT (Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is epic) and Magic Kingdom Park for its iconic status. Please take a look with your nephew and see what takes his fancy. 

    Coming from Ukraine, I wonder if your nephew may be sensitive to spontaneous loud noises. If you think this may be the case, my talented fellow panelist, LeAndra, compiled a helpful list of attractions he may like to prepare for or avoid. You may like to stop by Guest Services at the start of your day to explain your unique situation and see if the ever-helpful Disney Cast Members can sprinkle any extra pixie dust over your Walt Disney World adventure. 

    I wish you, and your nephew, all the best at the Most Magical Place on Earth and in the future. I would love to help if you need anything else. 

    You are the magic!
