    We are attending MVMCP Dec 15th, my daughter turns 3 on the 12th. I've been told she will "stay 2" the whole trip, as far as park tickets, since we are arriving while she is 2, but will she need an age 3-9 ticket then for MVMCP? even if we were t

    Hi Ashley!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  The situation as you've explained it, is correct.  Since you are purchasing her theme park tickets while she is still 2, she is considered to be 2 for the duration of the trip when it comes to theme park tickets.   Since the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is considered a separate event, if she is 3 when you plan on going, you technically should purchase her a ticket.  That being said, I have never known a Cast Member to question the age of a small child as to whether they are 3 or 2 years old, but in the words of Jiminy Cricket, "Always let your conscience be your guide."

    Just an FYI Ashley:  Although the official hours for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party say that it begins at 7pm, you will actually be able to enter the Magic Kingdom using those tickets at 4 pm!  This gives you plenty of time to enjoy all of the fun of the theme park, along with experiencing the exciting activities at the Christmas Party.

    I hope you all have a very fun vacation at Walt Disney World, and I would be happy to answer any other questions you have while planning your trip!  Just ask.  Have a magical day!
