    I am planning to take my son to Disney World for his birthday. If he is turning 3 on the day we will be visiting the park, what would the cost of his ticket be? We are Florida residents. I thank you in advance for your help!

    Hi Elena!

    How fun to bring your little fellow to the Walt Disney World Resort for his big day! We have been able to visit during quite a few birthdays for my children and each of them has been extra special. I may even know a certain grown-up kid who made sure to plan a visit around her big 40th birthday!

    Be sure to pick up your complimentary Celebration Button at Guest Relations upon arrival, Elena. Not only is it a great souvenir from your day, but your son will have Cast Members and even other Guests wishing him a happy birthday! If you’ll be dining at a table service location during your day, did you know you can special order a cake for your son? This could be the perfect ending for that celebration meal.

    Once a child turns 3 years old, a paid youth admission ticket is required. If you are Florida residents, you can purchase your son a ticket at the Florida resident rate. If you haven’t already, create a My Disney Experience Account. If you are a Florida resident and logged in to My Disney Experience, you’ll then be able to view the current pricing for Florida resident tickets.

    Have you considered celebrating a day or two early? You would still be welcome to pick up a Celebration button, even if it were a little bit before your son’s birthday. If your son were still only 2 years old, he would not need a paid admission ticket to the park. You could use that money towards that special dining reservation, the custom cake I mentioned, or an extra gift from the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A.

    I hope this helps, Elena! Please let us know what additional questions you have as you plan this exciting visit for your son!
