    Hello, I have a 1 year old. Do I need to register them to get into the park?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Breanna. Thanks for stopping by to ask your question. 

    Breanna, Guests under the age of 3 are special Guests of my pal, Mickey Mouse, and don't actually require any theme park admission to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. Because of this, they also don't need park pass reservations for the days you are visiting the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. When you go to enter the theme park, you'll just scan your ticket and walk or carry your little one right on in with you. There's no need to bring verification of age or anything like that. Mickey Mouse is very trusting! 

    Did you also know that kids under the age of 3 can also eat for free at Walt Disney World? It's true and I always took advantage of this when my daughter was little, especially at character meals because they can be a little pricey and kids that age eat so little. If you are dining at all-you-care-to-enjoy locations like Chef Mickey's your little one is able to have as many plates as he or she would like. If you are dining at locations where you order an entree off of a menu, your under 3 child is able to plate share with anyone at the table free of charge. The only time you are required to pay for food for your under the age of 3 child is if you wish to order them their own meal off the menu. Also, when you are dining at Walt Disney World restaurants you can absolutely bring in outside food and snacks for your little one. This is something I did a lot because my daughter was so picky. Walt Disney World is so flexible with little ones which is why it is such a great destination for vacations with families that have children of all ages. 

    I hope this helps, Breanna. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. Also, be sure to follow along with planDisney over on Instagram for tips and tricks for navigating the theme parks with your little one. Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

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
