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

    Hi, Kimberly!

    Once our little Mouseketeers turn 3, they are required to have a theme park ticket. But Mickey Mouse loves his littlest guests, so he does offer a discounted rate on tickets for children ages 3 - 9.

    Since your son will be 3, you will also book him FastPass+ selections and he will be charged for his meals at all locations. Kids meals are available at most locations, or you can purchase the Disney Dining Plan if added on with room and tickets for a Disney vacation package.

    At age 3, I recommend you rent or bring a stroller, even if he does not normally use one at home. There is a lot of walking, so a nice break in a stroller will be perfect for those little legs!

    Wishing you and your handsome 3 year old prince a magical vacation in Walt Disney World!
