    I am now bringing my son and not my daughter. Should I change the name on the reservation? I can not see how to do this. Thank you

    Welcome to planDisney, Christina!

    Wow, you're about to embark on a visit to The Happiest Place on Earth! There's so much Holiday magic to experience and enjoy. At Disney California Adventure Park, don't miss the Disney Festival of Holidays. Also, you simply must watch World of Color - Season of Light. At Disneyland Park, find a good viewing spot to watch the Christmas Fantasy Parade before watching "Believe...In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular. You're going to have a blast, Christina!

    But "let's get down to business." To change the names on Disneyland tickets, you can call the Tickets services phone line and speak to a friendly Cast Member. They can then wave their magic wand and *poof* a new name will appear on that ticket. However, calling this number from New Zealand will probably be quite expensive. Therefore, for most theme park tickets, you might be pleased to know that the name on the ticket doesn't have to match the person actually using the ticket. The important thing is for the person who first uses the ticket to remain the same throughout your visit. Here's what happens: When you enter your first theme park, a Cast Member will take a photo of each person when they first use their ticket. After that, whenever you enter a theme park, they'll use the photo to ensure it's the same person using it. 

    I hope that makes sense, Christina. 

    During your visit, stop by the Mint Julip Bar in New Orleans Square and get some Mickey-shaped beignets. I'm all about the original ones. However, why not also try the seasonal beignets too. For the Christmas season, you can enjoy some delicious beignets rolled in maple-flavored sugar. Mmmmmmmm! Now I'm all rumbly in my tumbly. Time for something sweet!

    Have a great trip, Christina!
