Is there a discount for Garden members? Since admission is included free of charge in the ticket price, there is not a member discount.
Why do children under age 3 require a $20 ticket? Since it is considered a catered event, each seat counts as a ticket because there are associated costs.

The ticket price is based on average family grouping size at a reasonable price point.
