    I have a child that is 2 and won't turn 3 till next summer. What happens if we buy and AP now and he turns 3 in the middle of it? Will I have to buy park tickets for him or will they continue honor the AP until it expires even though he would be 3?

    Hi, Cyndie!  I hope this answers your question, as I may be a bit confused.

    Children under the age of three do not require a theme park pass at any park, so he won't need an annual pass.  Once he turns three, he will need a pass to enter the theme parks.  If you are talking about you having an annual pass, and wondering if he can continue to be treated as a two year old for the length of your annual pass, I'm afraid it doesn't work quite that way.

    You can buy single day or multi-day passes for him while you wait for your annual pass renewal date, or you can purchase him an annual pass.  I ended up doing that with my youngest daughter, and we eventually all caught up!

    I hope this helps!
