    Does my 2 1/2 year old need a ticket? Turns 3 in June

    Hi, there!

     David, I'm so excited to hear you're planning a visit to the theme parks with your toddler. You're sure to make many magical memories together!

     To answer your question, children under the age of 3 are special Guests of Mickey Mouse and do not need Theme Park Tickets or Theme Park Reservations. Isn't that great? If your little one doesn't turn 3-years old until June, then you don't need to worry about purchasing a child's ticket for your April visit! 

     One of my favorite things about the Walt Disney World Resort is that the theme parks offer lots of family-friendly attractions. These attractions do not feature height requirements and they appeal to Guests of all ages! At Magic Kingdom Park, your little one is sure to enjoy attractions like Peter Pan's Flight, "it's a small world," The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and Under the Sea ~ Journey of The Little Mermaid. At EPCOT, take a dive in The Seas with Nemo & Friends and sail through Arendelle on Frozen Ever After. If you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, you won't want to miss Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway - it's an adventure for fans of all ages! At Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, Kilimanjaro Safaris, a guided tour through an African savanna, is an absolute must-do.

     Did you know that there's a conveniently located Baby Care Center in each of the four theme parks? The Baby Care Center is the perfect place to whisk your little one away to for some peace and quiet amid an adventure-filled day.

     Thanks for stopping by planDisney, David. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
