    Do children under 2 have to have a ticket, and do you offer veterans discount?

    Hi Raul!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for reaching out to us hEAR with your Disneyland Resort vacation planning question. I'm happy to be your planEAR today, and it's also my pleasure to assist a fellow Texan!

    Oh boy! I'm so excited that you're taking your junior Mickey or mini Minnie to Disneyland Resort so soon! I'm happy to report that kiddos ages 2 and under do not need to purchase a theme park admission ticket, nor do they need to make a Park Pass Reservation. They don't even need to purchase the new Disney Genie+ add-on service to enter both the parks as well as individual attractions. You'll simply walk (or push) them through the turnstiles and they can enjoy their Disney days with your group!

    I'm an Air Force wife myself, Raul, and I'm so sorry to say that the military ticket discount offered directly from Disney only extends to those who are currently Active Duty, Reservists, fully retired after 20 (or more) yEARs of service, or those who have a 100% service-related disability. If you fall into any of those categories you'll be able to purchase the 3 or 4-day Disney Military Promotional Park Hopper Ticket at a military base, post or installation with a ticket sales office near you. These tickets sadly aren't offered at Disneyland's ticket booths at the moment, but I'm hoping they will soon.

    Regardless if you do or don't qualify for a ticket discount, I do want to make sure that you purchase your theme park tickets as soon as possible. One additional step after selecting the dates you'd like to visit, which happens either when purchasing the tickets online or after uploading tickets purchased elsewhere to your My Disneyland Account or Disneyland Mobile App, Guests must also designate which theme park they'll be visiting on what day by making Park Pass Reservations. Dates for March are starting to book up; in fact, here's the current Park Pass Reservation Calendar. But I do want to say that if you find that your desired Disney dates aren't available at this moment, Raul, to keep checking back as these numbers are fluid and change as other guests change or cancel their previously made plans. You can even go in multiple times and grab reservations for one or two people in your party and then check back in a few hours to see if you can get more bookings for the rest in your group.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR your questions up, Raul! Be sure to follow the official planDisney Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
