    My son will be 3 during our trip to Disney. The first day of the trip, he will be still 2 years old Does he have to pay the entire trip? Or not , because he will be only two when we start Our Disney adventure? Thanks, Marisa

    Welcome to planDisney, Marisa!

    Oh, heading to Walt Disney World with your little prince will be so very magical! My daughter was three for our first trip, and we brought her back with her almost three-year-old brother just a few years later. What a wonderful visit you'll have!

    Walt Disney World uses the age of all visitors at the start of their adventure, so your little one will fall into the two-year-old category throughout your stay. This means that while the rest of you will need Theme Park Tickets for park entry, your little one won't need a ticket, so he will be Mickey Mouse's Guest throughout your stay. 

    While planning all of the fun, be sure to check out this super-informative post Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones. There, you'll find lists of little ones' favorite attractions organized by park, making your planning perfectly suited to your family's needs. There's even a list of 80+ Great Attractions for Preschoolers, so you'll be able to enjoy a variety of family fun that's perfect for everyone.

    Remember, too, that at Table Service Restaurants, you may order a meal for your son or, if you prefer, he is welcome to share from the adults' plates instead--whichever works better for you. We credit Walt Disney World with turning our kids into foodies, as they loved to sample what the grownups were having while also feeling quite grown up by making selections from great kids' menus, too. Take a look at options for diners 9 and under at Coral Reef Restaurant, for example--a family favorite--and you'll see how dining in Disney is a treat for Guests of all ages. 

    As you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, Marisa, be sure to send additional questions our way. We love to help!
