    My friend and I would like to plan our Disney vacation but she has a 7 month old would we have to buy a ticket for the 7 month old to or how does that work?

    Hi there, Bailey! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for the great question! 

    Your friend is going to be receiving quite a stunning birthday gift! Surprising a friend with a trip to Walt Disney World is an exciting undertaking but it can definitively be overwhelming at times. 

    Children under the age of three years are not required to have a ticket in order to enter the parks so you will not be required to purchase a ticket for your friend’s seven month old child. In addition, children under the age of three years do not require a Fastpass+ selection in order to accompany older members of the party with Fastpass+ onto an attraction. However, it should be noted that some Walt Disney World attractions may have height requirements so be sure to check the list of attractions for this information. 

    If there are attractions with height requirements that you would like to experience, there are quite a few attractions that offer Rider Switch. Rider Switch is a service available on select attractions that allows one adult to wait with the non-rider Guest while the rest of the party experiences the attraction. Once the other adult in the party completes their experience, they can return and supervise the non-rider Guest. This would allow both you and your friend to enjoy an attraction despite having a small child that does not meet height requirements. 

    I’ve planned my fair share of surprise trips and can absolutely say it is worth all the effort! Good luck planning the rest of your trip!
