    Trying to make reservations for the theme park, but it won’t let me reserve for my youngest of 2. Do I not have to reserve for him?

    Hello there, Maritza. Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by to ask your question here. 

    Maritza, Guests under the age of 3 are special guests of my pal, Mickey Mouse, and actually do not require theme park admission to enter any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Because children under the age of 3 do not need theme park tickets, there is no need to make park pass reservations for them since park pass reservations are based on your theme park ticket. When you go to enter a Walt Disney World Theme Park, you'll just scan your MagicBand of Keys to the World Card and enter bringing your under the age of 3 child in with you. There is no need to verify your child's age or anything like that with a Cast Member before you enter, you'll just walk on in with him or her. 

    Maritza, I'm not sure if you know this or not but Guests under the age of 3 can also eat for free at the Walt Disney World restaurants. If you are dining at all-you-care-to-enjoy places like Chef Mickey's, your under the age of 3 child is able to have as many of their own plates as he or she would like at no additional charge to you. If you are dining at a restaurant where you order a single entree off of a menu, your small child is able to plate share with anyone at the table that you would like for free. The only time you'll need to pay for food for your small child is if you wish to purchase them their own meal to enjoy. 

    I always loved visiting Walt Disney World when my daughter was little because we were able to save quite a bit of money. She may not be able to remember the trip but I made memories with her that will last my lifetime! I hope this helps clear up any confusion you may have had about the park pass reservation system. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Have fun and happy planning!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
