    We are traveling to WDW in Oct for 2nd trip, 1st with my then just turned 3 year old (1 month earlier). Do I have to buy him a park pass? We are planning on getting the dining plan, do I have to buy one for him or can he just share?

    All children who are age three or above at the time you visit Walt Disney World will require a ticket for admission to the theme parks.  This holds true even for children who recently crossed that age threshold, so yes, your three-year-old son will need a ticket.  One of the requirements for purchasing the dining plan is that it can only be purchased as part of a Magic Your Way package that includes tickets, and resort accommodations.  All guests in the party must be a part of the package and have the same ticketing options.  Therefore, you will be required to purchase the dining plan for your son if you do intend to purchase it for the other guests in the party.  The per night cost for children on the dining plan is minimal though.  Hope that helps!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
