    Can you stay at a outside Disney hotel but catch the shuttle free at hotels? Do you have to pay for a kid who is turning 3 on the trip ?

    Hi Mhijaie,

    Is your vacation coming up soon? I sure hope so. I am counting down the days for my next vacation. In no time, you'll be having a magical time.

    Resort Transportation is available between all Disney Resort Hotel and the Theme Parks, Water Parks and Disney Springs, with options like the Walt Disney World Bus Service, Walt Disney World Water Transportation, and the world-famous Resort Monorail. Additional service is available between the Theme Parks, and from the Transportation and Ticket Center. But why not move around in style, with Minnie Van Service!

    Cast Members are known to say that nobody ages Disney. That's why any youngling that turns three years of age while at the Resort, is not required to pay for the entire stay. But be sure to tell any Cast Member you are celebrating for a complimentary Happy Birthday button.

    One last tip: an awesome way to celebrate your child's birthday is with a character meal. Among my favorite, Chef Mickey's, located in Disney's Contemporary Resort. Be sure to make advanced reservations up to 180 days early. Happy planning, and Happy Birthday!
