    We have a child who will be turning 3 during our next visit. Do we have to purchase theme park tickets for him? Since the cutoff age is 3, we're not sure what to do. Thanks!

    Hi Shannon! What a special birthday present for your little one! Disney considers a child's age at the date of arrival as the age for the entire trip. If you're son is two when he checks in, then you won't be required to purchase park tickets for him when he turns 3 later in the trip. 

    Be sure to ask for a free birthday button at your resort's front desk so that he'll receive lots of birthday wishes!

    Hope you all have a magical time!
