    On the packages for resorts, park tickets and dining at ages 10+ the same as adults? What’s the cost difference for under 10?

    Dear Donna,

    I'm so glad that you decided to stop by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    You are correct in that guests ages 10 and up are considered adults in terms of tickets and dining. They must purchase an adult ticket and will pay adult prices for the Disney Dining Plan. At Quick Service restaurants, they can certainly purchase kid menu items since those are not age-specific. At Walt Disney World Resort, guests ages 3 to 9 are considered children in terms of ticket prices and dining options.

    It's hard to say the cost difference exactly, because it varies based on number of days of tickets, the type of dining experience you choose, and many other factors. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
