    Hi panel. Extended family is planning a trip for 2011 or 2012.I would like to purchase park tickets ASAP. My son is 8 now and would be 10 or 11 when we go so do I need to purchase an adult ticket or can I get the child ticket ? Thanks

    Hi, Karen!  If you are not going to be using the ticket at all until your son is 10 or 11, you do need to purchase an adult ticket for him.  Even though he is eligible now for a child's ticket, he is not going to be using the ticket at all until he is required to have an adult ticket.  That means, you'll need to be ready by purchasing the adult ticket now.

    I hope that helps with your vacation planning!  And I hope the whole family has a magical vacation!
