    Under 3 says they do not need a ticket but how does that work with the new reservations you have to make for the park?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Dominique! Thanks for stopping by to ask your question. 

    Dominique, Guests under the age of 3 are Guests of my pal, Mickey Mouse, and don't require theme park admission to visit any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Because park pass reservations are linked directly to tickets, Guests under the age of 3 also do not require a park pass reservation to be made in their name to visit any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks either. Everyone else in your party, age 3 or older, will need both valid theme park admission and a park pass reservation. When it comes time for you to enter the Walt Disney World Theme Park with the park pass reservation, you'll scan your ticket and enter bringing your under the age of 3 children with you. It's really an honor system and no documentation will be required at the entry for your little one. 

    Did you also know that kids under the age of 3 can eat for free at Walt Disney World, Dominique? Yes, it is true! I always loved visiting when my daughter was that small because it saved us a lot of money. At all-you-care-to-enjoy meals, you are able to make your little one as many of his or her own personal plates as they'd like. At restaurants where you order a single entree off of a menu, you are able to plate share at no additional cost to you. Also, please feel free to bring in snacks for your little one to enjoy throughout the day, even at restaurants. It's no trouble at all to have your under the age of 3 child snack on munchies while you enjoy a sit-down meal. Walt Disney World is so accomodating that way! 

    I hope this helps clear up any confusion about tickets and park pass reservations for your little one, Dominique. If you have any other questions while you plan your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help.

    Have fun!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
