    Our 2 year-old will turn 3 on our last day. We have registered his birthday so he will get a free ticket. Do we need to buy him a meal-plan for that day? The adults all have meal plans. Is it possible to get him a mealplan for one day without a ticket?

    Hi Ana,

    You don't need to worry about park tickets or meal plans for your almost 3 year old. Even though he will be turning 3 during your trip because he was 2 at the start of your stay he will stay 2 in Disney's eyes until you depart. This does mean though that you will be unable to take advantage of the free tickets on his birthday, but as he's getting everything for free anyway it won't make any difference. You probably know but all under 3's are able to eat free at all buffet restaurants and from adults plates at all table service restaurants.

    Have a fantastic birthday trip,
