    we bought tickets and have a reservation in a few months for 7 people. is there a way to transfer 1 of the child tickets to another family member since 1 of our 7 is under 3?

    Hiya, Ben! I love to see a fellow East Coaster heading out west to the Happiest Place on Earth! There is truly something special about Walt's original park. The charm, the windows on Main Street, U.S.A. reflecting the achievements of the original Imagineers, and ... of course ... opening day attractions! You can feel the imaginative spirit and magic with every turn! 

    It sounds like you are the planner in your family, just like us! It's great to see that you already have your theme park tickets ready to go. Just a friendly reminder that you will also need theme park reservations to go along with those tickets. If you purchased tickets recently on the Disneyland website, you made reservations as part of the checkout process. If not, Hakuna Matata! You can always log into your account and head to the "Parks & Tickets" tab on the top navigation bar and select "Ticket and Reservation Details". Select "Make Park Reservations" and follow the prompts from there! 

    When it comes to assigning your tickets, I have some good news for you. While you may have entered names for each at the time of purchase, they are not actually assigned until you scan into Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park for the first time. At that point, a Cast Member will take a photo of the Guest and it is no longer transferable. I'm guessing you purchased a children's ticket for this particular member of your family. If you have an additional family member between the ages of 3 and 9, they should be able to use this ticket and no further updates or changes need to be made! If you are hoping to use it for an adult, you will likely need to upgrade it in person at the Main Entrance Ticket Booth. Keep in mind that with any changes or upgrades to tickets, your original theme park reservation will not transfer. Essentially, a new ticket requires a new reservation. You can always keep your eyes on the theme park reservation calendar as you get closer to your day, but you would be subject to same-day availability. 

    If you are looking for another adult ticket and prefer to have all your Mickey Mouses in a row before heading out for your trip, you could purchase the new adult ticket and hold on to that original ticket for your next trip. One Park Per Day tickets expire on December 30, 2023 while multi-day tickets expire January 12, 2024. Even if you pass the expiration, you can always apply the value towards the purchase of a new ticket, so the magic never fully burns out! 

    Well, Ben, I hope this was helpful in your planning! If your family is celebrating something special (even if it's just being together!), I highly recommend getting a complimentary 'I'm Celebrating!" button at Guest Relations or most merchandise locations. Your group will be greeted with good wishes throughout your day ... and you never know what kind of pixie dust may follow! If you have any more questions, please stop by again here at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
