    do 3 year olds need park tickets if so how much

    Hey there, Carmen, and welcome to planDisney!   

    Carmen, as a dad of four I know all too well that 3-years-old is the magical time where babies become “children” in the eyes of Walt Disney World and finally need a park ticket. This age has been cemented in my mind because I had to completely rehaul the vacation budget every time someone turned 3! So to answer your question, yes, 3-year-olds do need Theme Park tickets and Disney Park Pass reservations to enter the Theme Parks. One plus about this milestone is that your 3-year-old can get their first MagicBand! It’s so cute to see them walking through the Theme Parks with their new band. And if your kids are anything like mine, scanning into the Theme Parks and Lightning Lane Entrances will make the magic come alive in a whole new way. 

    Walt Disney World has a dynamic Theme Park Ticket pricing structure that is determined by your Theme Park Ticket start date. With that in mind, it’s difficult to tell you exactly how much the tickets cost. But pricing can be confirmed through the Theme Park Tickets link on the Walt Disney World website. 

    I hope this helps, Carmen! If you have more questions while planning your vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
