    Hey! I'm planning a vacation and I was curious if when you have a child under 3, if they will count as a person on your "party"

    Hello Rose!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Taking a preschooler on their first Walt Disney World Resort vacation is an Endlessly Magic experience for both child and parent.

    When you make plans for your party, any child traveling in you party that is under 3 does not require separate Theme Park Admission for access into any of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks or Water Parks when accompanied by an Adult.  

    In addition, children under 3 may eat off of a parents plate at any Dining Location and are not charged at buffet or family style meals. You may choose to get your child under 3 their own meal, but they will be charged,

    For FastPass+ Selections, children under 3 are granted access to the FastPass+ Queue with any accompanying Adult that has a booked FastPass+ for the designated time, as long as the child meets the height requirements for the attraction. Children under 3 do not require FastPass+ Selections in My Disney Experience.

    Be sure to stop by and Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater in Magic Kingdom to say hello to the "Big Cheese". You may also want to book a  reservation for Harmony Barber Shop to receive your "First Haircut" Mickey Ears by contacting (407)939-7529 or pick up a pair at the neighboring The Chapeau Store to compliment the Character Meet.

    Have a Magical First Visit!
