    We are planning on going next spring. My son will turn 3 on our 2nd to last day there. Will he need to be paid for those two days or does he still go free because he was 2 at arrival?

    Hi Brooke,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Planning a Walt Disney World vacation with a little one is so exciting, and I'm thrilled to help you with your question. 

    No one ages at Walt Disney World! Because your son will be 2 at the beginning of your vacation, he will officially remain 2 for your entire stay. So there's no need to buy an admission ticket for him, and he will be able to eat free when he shares from your plate or accompanies you to an all-you-care-to-eat dining experience. 

    There's so much to do for guests of all ages at Walt Disney World. Did you know there are more than 80 rides and attractions that are available every guest, including infants and young children? You will find lots of ideas and tips for visiting Walt Disney World with young children in this guide for Planning for Preschool Kids and Little Ones

    You will want to pick up a free "Happy Birthday" button for your son, too, at Guest Relations in any theme park. Guests who sport the buttons on their special days often get additional magical attention from cast members, characters and even other guests. It adds a little bit of extra pixie dust to the celebration.

    Thanks for stopping by with your question, Brooke. Please let us know if you have any other questions about dining or special events or FastPass+ reservations as you ready for your visit. Enjoy!
