    We are planning our first ever trip to Walt Disney World, but have not decided whether to visit in 2013 or 2014. We have twins that will turn 10 in 2014. What are some differences for a visiting child for age 9 vs. 10 besides children's meal plans?

    Hi Michele!!!

    Thank you so much for your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!!!  This is a great question and I am pleased to help with it!!!

    The main difference between taking a 9 vs. 10 year old (besides the children's and adult's dining plan options/prices) is the price of a Magic Your Way Ticket.  There is approximately a $25 difference in adult tickets and child tickets.  This isn't a huge money difference, but every little bit counts.  Plus, when you take them at age 10, you will be paying about an additional $20-$25 per day per child for the Dining Plan based on the current child's and adult's prices.  It would definitely be a cheaper trip money wise to take them when they are 9 vs. when they are 10.  

    Other than that, I really don't see any major differences in taking a 9 vs. 10 year old.  Please let me know if you have any other questions!!!

    Have a magical day!!
