Traveling with the Little Ones

Little Ones at Disney Theme Parks

We understand what traveling with a preschooler is all about. See ways we make traveling with little ones easy and fun:

  • Little Guests under 3 years of age get free entry into Disney Theme Parks and Disney Water Parks.
  • Disney Resort Guests enjoy extended Disney park hours, known as Extra Magic Hours, which offer a rare and unique opportunity to enjoy additional time in Disney Theme Parks-above and beyond the standard operating schedule-at no extra charge.
  • Disney FASTPASS+ service allows Guests to reserve access to select Disney Theme Park experiences before they even arrive so that they can spend less time in Line.  They can enjoy access to select shows, Character Greeting, and parade and fireworks viewing areas.
