    We would like to visit WDW for my daughters 3rd birthday. On this website it says that she will not need a ticket as she will be 2 upon check in. When we called we were told she does. Who is correct?

    Hi Adrean!

    I'm so sorry you have been given conflicting information.  I called Disney reservations to double check the policy on Guests under the age of 3.   I'm happy to share that information with you. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel and have purchased a Magic Your Way Package which includes hotel stay, theme park tickets, and possibly a Disney Dining Plan your daughter would be considered 2 years old throughout your stay, because she will be 2 years old when you check in. 

    If you have not purchased a Magic Your Way Package your daughter would be able to enter a theme park free if you use the first entry on her ticket before she turns 3.   If you enter a theme park for the first time after her third birthday you would be required to purchase an entrance ticket for her.

    I hope that has helped clear up any concerns you may have had.   If you have any additional questions please let us know.   We love to help Guests have the most magical time possible on a Walt Disney World vacation.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
