    Do I have to purchase a ticket for my 3 year old granddaughter

    Hi Mark,

    It's always great to welcome a fellow Floridian to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and answer your questions about planning a Walt Disney World vacation with your family.

    Your granddaughter is at a fabulous age for discovering the magic of the Disney theme parks. I have such fond memories of my daughters at that age as they soared on Dumbo the Flying Elephant, hugged Mickey and Minnie and marveled at the giraffes on the African savannah.

    Guests who have not yet reached their third birthdays are special guests at Walt Disney World and do not need a ticket for admission. Those who are ages 3 to 9 qualify for a child's ticket, which usually offers a slightly lower cost than an adult ticket for ages 10 and older.

    If you are planning to visit before June 30, 2020, Mark, you may want to consider the Discover Disney ticket for you and your granddaughter. The limited time offer for Florida residents provides a deep discount on three- and four-day admission, as much as 40% off. The Discover Disney tickets are the same price for all guests. If you buy the tickets online, you can even verify your Florida residency at the time of purchase so that you won't need to stop at a ticket window to activate the tickets.

    Please let us know if we can help you build your itinerary for your visit. This list of the 80+ rides and attractions that are appropriate for guests of all ages, including infants, is a good place to start. Thanks again, Mark, for your question. Enjoy!
