    If I purchase my park tickets through Air Miles, can I upgrade the ticket to Pop Hopper and how? I see there is an age limit (2 and under) for admission tickets, what about dining plan, do even small kids require dining plan ?

    Hi Kathryn!

    Yes, you can absolutely upgrade your park tickets once you arrive at Walt Disney World.  You will need to visit Guest Services or any Ticket Window located at the 4 parks or Downtown Disney and just pay the difference of your ticket price.  Disney's Park Hopper option is $34 for a 1-day ticket and $59.00 for all other tickets, if you are considering adding this option make sure to do so at the beginning of your trip because the price will not be prorated.  For example, if you have a 5-day base ticket and decide to add the Park Hopper option on your first day, it will cost $11.80 per a day for Park Hopping privileges.  If you wait until the third day into your vacation, the cost will still be $59.00 although it will end up costing you $19.67 per a day to add Park Hopper.

    All children under the age of three are not charged admission at Walt Disney World, which makes for a great bargain if you have little ones traveling in your party!  Disney's Dining Plan is for children ages 3 to 9 and adults 10+, there are a couple of options with children under the age of three.  If you are dining at a buffet or family style meal, you can choose to have your child just share with you or purchase a children's meal separately.  While not every restaurant will do this, I have had many servers bring my youngest her own crudités which was a delightfully healthy for her which made this mom very happy.

    I hope this was helpful, Kathryn and please visit me again if you have anymore questions!

    Happy Planning!
