    We are planning to attend dw in october. My son will be only one. I am having a hard time figuring what i need to get him tickets for. I have found i need to include him in dining but what about ticket for halloween party or if we attend cirque du soleil?

    Good news, Pamela!  Because he's under three year of age, your son will gain complimentary admittance to all four of the major theme parks as well as the water parks at Disney World.  So, too, will his admission to Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party be free of charge.  He is also able to eat from your plate at restaurants where you order off a menu (for free) and he can dine (for free) at all of Disney's buffets and family-style meals.  The only time his meals will cost you are when you order a separate meal/snack for him.

    As for Cirque du Soleil, whether or not you need a ticket for your child depends upon whether or not you intend to hold him on your lap throughout the performance.  If that's the case, he would be permitted complimentary admittance.  If you would like him to sit in his own seat, you will need to purchase a ticket for him.  One thing to keep in mind is that the show is fairly lengthy (around ninety minutes) and does not have an intermission so the youngest of viewers might get fidgety during the show. 

    I hope that clears things up for you!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
