    I have a 1 year old, do I need to purchase a park ticket for her? I wasn't sure what the age limit is for small children. Also, are we allowed to bring our own strollers into the parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley!

    I hope you are excited to plan a magical vacation to Walt Disney World® Resort. You've come to the right place for the answers to all your questions. 

    Guests under the age of three do not need theme park admission to visit the most magical place on earth. Your little prince or princess will be all set to enter without a ticket as a one year old. 

    Having traveled to Walt Disney World® with all three of my children starting as infants, I highly recommend using your own stroller. It will keep your baby happy to be in its own space, and will be much more convenient for you, too. 

    Here are a few stroller tips to help make your day run smoothly:

    • When utilizing Disney Bus Transportation, you will need to remove your little one and fold up your stroller to ride. When riding the Monorail, they can stay right in their stroller. 

    • When arriving at a theme park entrance, look for the touch points that are stroller accessible. Baby can stay in their stroller to pass through security and the entrance to the park. 

    I've also included an official Moms Panel video that provides some great stroller tips while enjoying your day in the theme parks. And for information on the Baby Care Centers found within all four parks, select the highlighted link. These Centers will be your life saver while in the parks. 

    I hope this helps, Ashley! Please let me know if you have any additional questions, or need any additional tips on traveling with a little one. I am here to help!
