    Hello, I will be going to Disneyland with an almost 3 year old. Do I need to bring some sort of ID for her? I'd really rather not carry her passport around with me at the park.

    Hi there, Rhine! Welcome to planDisney! Taking your little one to the Happiest Place on Earth is truly something you will never forget. My mom has vivid memories of my first steps on Main Street, U.S.A. at the age of 3, and I treasure the memory of watching my own kids take their first stroll with wonder in their eyes. You are in for a magical time of forever memory-making!

    I'm happy to tell you that you will not need to show proof of age for your daughter so you can keep her passport safe and secure back in your room. I can understand not wanting to take it out with you for a day in the parks! 

    One of the things I love most about the Disneyland Resort is that there is just so much to do no matter if you are 3 or 103. Your daughter will love taking a spin on the Mad Tea Party teacups, floating through "it's a small world" or watching the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs unfold in Snow White's Enchanted Wish. There are a few attractions that have height requirements that you may want to just take a peek at before heading into the parks, but honestly, my kids were so in awe of all the sights and sounds they did not notice there were experiences they weren't quite tall enough for yet! 

    Ahead of your visit, I recommend spending a little time in the Disneyland Mobile App to get familiar with all the features that will make your park days seamless and filled with pixie dust. The newest addition is the Disney Genie Service, which allows you to hop on a magic carpet and let the Genie plan your ideal Disney day! When you open the app, tap on the "+" along the bottom navigation bar and choose "View My Genie Day and Tip Board". From here, toggle to "My Day" along the top and you will see a "Get Started Now" button. You can load all of your preferences and interests for Genie to sort through ahead of time so that the morning of your park day, he will deliver a personalized itinerary just for you and your family! You can move through it and accept or pass on suggestions and he will continue to make live updates throughout the day. One of the features that is so great is that you can actually include that you need to be mindful of attractions with height requirements, which makes planning for days with our littlest Guests a whole new world!  

    Rhine, you are in for some magical times up ahead! When traveling with my little ones, I always like to take a break in the middle of the day for naps and downtime so they can experience the absolute wonder of the parks at night ... and you are in for a special treat as the nighttime spectaculars are back just in time for your visit! Be sure to make time to see World of Color, Disneyland Forever fireworks, and the Main Street Electrical Parade - a classic!

    As you plan for your visit, feel free to come back to see us if any more questions pop up! We are always here for you at planDisney

    Keep wishing on those stars,
