    my son will be 2 and a half years old when se go to our disney vacation. Does he have to pay theme park tickets?

    Hi Maria! Seeing Walt Disney World Resort though the eyes of your 2 1/2 year old will be beyond magical! I'm so excited for you to see the awe and wonder in his eyes!

    I have great news for you! Children younger than 3 do not need a theme park ticket. If a Cast Member asks his age as you are entering a theme park, simply let the Cast Member know your son is 2 and he will be permitted in with you and your family.

    There are countless great resources for Planning for Pre-School Kids and Little Ones. You will find a list of attractions made just for your son as well as wonderful suggestions for each of the 4 theme parks and 2 water parks. Make sure you become familiar with the Baby Care Centers. Located in all 4 theme parks, the Baby Care Centers are the perfect place to feed or change your little one. You will also find a small on-site shop if you realize you have left any of your must-have items in your Resort hotel room.

    Thanks so much for sharing your question with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please let me know if you need any other tips or advice as you plan your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
