    We are planning to go to Disney in December and one of my children is 2 right now. I know 3 and under is free but in December she will be 3 so should I purchase a ticket for her.

    Hello there Shaneisha, 

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so happy you'll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your little one later this year! I have the fondest memories of my own two-year-old's very first trip. It seems like I blinked and now suddenly I have two tweens, so I know just how special it is to make those precious memories together at every stage of life. 

    Valid admission and theme park reservations are required for anyone over the age of three. If your child will be turning three before the start of your trip, she'll need her own ticket even if she is only two at the time you make the ticket purchase.

    If you are purchasing a room and ticket vacation package online, you'll be prompted to enter your child's age at the time of travel from the drop-down boxes at the top of the screen. If you are just purchasing tickets, you'll be prompted to enter the name and age of each guest at the time of purchase or link them from your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account. Date of birth is required for those under age 18 on your Family & Friends list.

    Three is an exciting age for guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort as they are officially old enough to enjoy a visit to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. These magical transformations are reserved exclusively for ages 3-12 so your daughter will be a perfect age if she decides to splurge on a little royal treatment during your visit. Advance reservations can be made 60 days in advance and are highly recommended for this experience.

    I hope this helps you plan your most magical vacation! If we can answer any additional planning questions please don't hesitate to come back and see us again here at planDisney!

    Magic and memories,
