    I accidentally bought an adult discount ticket for a 9 year old. Will I have problems entering the park ?

    Hey there, Juan!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by. I see that you have an upcoming visit to the Disneyland Resort! I'm certain you want to make sure that you're all set for a smooth trip, so let's get to answering your question.

    A child's Theme Park Ticket is meant to be used by a Guest ages 3-9. Any Guest that is aged 10+ must use an adult ticket. In response to your question, it will be fine for a child to use an adult ticket (even a discounted one) but an adult may not use a child's ticket. You won't be able to recover the difference in cost between the two tickets.

    Since your visit is taking place in just a few short days, are you preparing your Pixar and Star Wars knowledge? You'll be able to catch both Season of the Force and Pixar Fest as both festivals are happening at the Resort! There are even Foodie Guides for both events that you can study ahead of time to know if there are any special dishes that you'd like! 

    Juan, I hope that this was useful for you as you prepare to visit the Happiest Place on Earth! Please return again if you have more questions because we'd love to hear from you. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
