    Were celebrating my son’s 1st birthday on disneyland. I just wanna ask does he get any souvenirs? And also can he ride the rides?

    Hello, Dianne! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and asking your question. 

    Hooray! There is nothing as magical as celebrating a birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth! Your little one is in for the time of his life. You can pick up a complimentary birthday button at City Hall in Disneyland Park or the Chamber of Commerce in Disney California Adventure Park. This will garner him lots of birthday wishes from Cast Members. There is also lots of birthday merchandise in the parks to celebrate the 90th birthday of Mickey Mouse, so you might consider purchasing your son a pair of birthday Mickey ears to commemorate the special day. 

    When it comes to attractions, there are LOTS that he can ride. In fact, there are over 40 attractions between both theme parks that do not have any height restrictions. This means that even the littlest of Guests can ride along with their parents. These include attractions like Pirates of the Caribbean, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, "it's a small world," The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure, and so many more.

    He can also meet many of his favorite pals around the parks. Use the Disneyland app to look up exactly when and where characters are meeting throughout the day. The app will also be your best tool for navigating the parks efficiently. It will show you attraction wait times, the location of the nearest restrooms, where to find a PhotoPass photographer, and more. 

    I hope your little one has an amazing birthday at the Disneyland Resort!
