    If my child is 2 on the arrival date to Disneyland Grand Californian resort, and turns 3 the second day of our stay, do I need to buy a park ticket for her for the second and third days of our stay (ie the days she is 3)?

    Hi Charles, welcome to planDisney!

    How fun! The Disneyland Resort is one of the best places to celebrate birthdays. Be sure to visit City Hall on Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park, or at Guest Services in Disney California Adventure Park to pick up your complimentary birthday button for your child!

    But back to your question, children under the age of three do not need a theme park ticket to enter the parks. As long as your child is still two years old when she first enters the parks, she will not need a ticket for the length of your stay!

    AND! I do want to mention that the Baby Care Centers are amazing and worth a visit! My wife and I used them often for our little ones. They offer a clean and comfortable facility with changing rooms, nursing rooms, a feeding area with high chairs, and more. At Disneyland Park, it's located at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., next to First Aid. At Disney California Adventure Park, the baby care center is located next to Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop, across from The Bakery Tour in Pacific Wharf.

    I hope you have the most wonderful time celebrating your child's birthday!

    See ya real soon!
