    Hello! If I have twins that will be turning three while we are at Disney, do I need to purchase tickets for them? I'm not sure which days we will be going to a Disney park on our vacation, other then their birthday.

    Hi Taryn,

    This is a popular question asked by many. If you are headed to Walt Disney World to celebrate your children's 3rd birthday, and they are two at the start of your vacation, you can still consider them 2 years old for entry purposes. In other words, enjoy this last free vacation.

    Having said that, if your little ones are three when you go to the park for the first time, I would say that you should purchase a child ticket. No one is going to ask for proof of age, but there is an admission cost associated with a three year old.

    Hope this helps. Have a magical vacation!

After spending 25 years in RI, my husband and I relocated to GA with our youngest, who is now in high school. I took my first trip to Walt Disney World when I was 11 and I have traveled many times since then with all different party sizes. From creating our first itinerary as a honeymooner to later creating magical experiences for our multigenerational family gatherings, every aspect of planning a vacation has been pure joy to me.  Learn More About Diane
