    Hello, I was planning my vacation and I'm going with my 12 year old daughter. Will she be any cheaper?

    Unfortunately not. At Disney World there are three levels of pricing based on age.

    - Infants are all children under the age of three. They get free admission into the theme parks and can dine free in many circumstances.

    - Children are guests ages 3 to 9. Park admission tickets are at a reduced rate and they are charged a child's rate on the Disney Dining Plan.

    - Adults are all guests age 10 and up. Any child 10 or older will need to pay full price for park admission and will be charged the adult rate for the Dining Plan.

    If your daughter is a light eater, this may be one situation where you may want to skip the Dining Plan and just order your meals a la carte. If you do this, she will be able to order from the children's menu if that suits her, and you could save some money there.
