    Is a 3 year old free? How does a fast pass work with a 3 year old? Do they have to have a fast pass?

    Hi, Angela!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hEAR that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your little one!  There is something so special about experiencing Disney magic through the eyes of a young child.  Be sure to purchase Memory Maker before your visit so that you can relive all of your treasured memories with unlimited downloads of your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures.

    When visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks with little Mouseketeers, children who are under the age of 3 are considered "Guests of Mickey" and do not need a ticket.  However, theme park tickets are required for all guests ages 3 and up.  It is worth noting that tickets for guests ages 3-9 are priced lower than those for ages 10 and up.

    Since your 3-year-old will have a theme park ticket to link to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections for them along with the rest of your party.  The list of Walt Disney World Resort attractions can be filtered according to height requirements, thrill level, age, and interests to help you determine which attractions will be practically perfect in every way for your little one.

    As you get ready for your visit, be sure to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips on making magic with your preschooler, and please stop by to see us again if you have any additional questions.  See ya real soon!
