    Planning a 4 person all inclusive trip. Does my 1 year old count as a person? Or is she free?

    Hello, Monica! I have a 1 year old, myself, so I can help shed some light on this situation.

    When planning a vacation for a party that includes a 1 year old, know that Walt Disney World Resort considers any child age 2 and under to be an infant, and is free to enter the parks. I’ve taken my baby girl three time already since she does not need Theme Park tickets

    As a guest of the resort, infants may be eligible for their own MagicBand, but they too, will room for free with their parents. Make sure to request a crib or a Pack N’ Play on your hotel reservation because there is a limited supply. On some occasions, I’ve brought my own Pack N’ Play from home since it flies for free on most airlines.

    Likewise, there is no charge for the Disney Dining Plan for a 1 or 2-year-old, because there is the assumption that they will share a parent’s plate. You are free to purchase them meals from the menu or snacks at any time at your own cost. My baby had a very healthy appetite, so while she most often shares with me, I’ve been known to buy her a kids meal, or an ice cream at snack time!

    Happy Planning! Please let me know how else I might help you with your magical vacation! ~Lindsey P.
