    Hello, we will be traveling to Disney early summer. My son is 2 years old and I was wondering if he has to be including in our park reservation and if so how can I modify our park reservations to include him? I appreciate any and all help!

    Hi Melanie, welcome to planDisney!

    Virginia is for Disney lovers and you are going to love experiencing the magic of Walt Disney World Resort through your son's eyes. When my son was two, he loved meeting Mickey Mouse, soaring high on Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and having midday nap/pool breaks. He enjoyed dressing up to dine at Be Our Guest Restaurant and getting his diaper changed on the spacious changing tables at the Baby Care Centers. Mama loved it all!

    I have magical news for you, Melanie. At Walt Disney World Resort, Guests under the age of 3 are Guests of Mickey Mouse and, unlike their accompanying adults, do not require valid admission, a theme park reservation, or a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card). No theme park reservation modification is required, so let's release a big sigh of relief together - phew! 

    If your party decides to purchase Disney Genie+ service during your visit, your son will not need to tap in at Lightning Lane entrances, either. He can simply join your party on a Genie+ Lightning Lane attraction like the V.I.T. (Very Important Toddler) he is.

    Infants and toddlers should be included in any dining reservations you have, Melanie. This ensures adequate space for your entire party, even if your little guy won't be ordering his own meal. If you happen to have excluded your son from any existing dining reservations, the mobile dine check-in process on the My Disney Experience mobile app allows you to add up to one additional infant (Ages 0-2) to your party mix at the time of check-in. 

    I encourage you to bookmark my personal link and reach out with any additional questions, Melanie. 

    Choose magic,
