    I just picked my fast passes. However my son is only two so technically doesn’t have a ticket. Will they let him on the rides with us in the fast pass line?

    Hey Kayla. I sure love seeing a fellow North Carolinian stop by here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    Isn't it great that children under the age of 3 don't require theme park admission at Walt Disney World? I like to think of it as a personal gift from Mickey Mouse, himself! Because your son doesn't have a park ticket, there is nothing to link to a My Disney Experience account and that's why you aren't able to make him FastPass+ selections. But no worries because you'll be able to bring your son right along in the FastPass+ return queue with no problems. 

    Did you also know that kids under the age of 3 can dine for free too? It just keeps getting better and better. Too bad they can't stay little forever! At all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants, like 'Ohana and Chef Mickey's, you are able to fix your son as many personal plates from the buffet as his little belly will hold. At restaurants where you select a single entree from the menu, like The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park, your under 3 child can plate share with anyone from the table that you'd like. If you wish to order your son his own meal at these style restaurants, only then will you be charged an additional fee. When my daughter was that age we dined at a lot of all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants to save a little bit of money. It worked out fantastic though because these meals tend to be character meals and my daughter loved getting an autograph and her picture taken with some of her favorite friends. This also saved time when we were back at the parks because we didn't have to wait in line for the characters and could spend that time experience other attractions around Walt Disney World.

    I hope this helps clear up any confusion. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.  Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
