    Hi! Going to Disneyland in March to celebrate my sons 3rd birthday. We didnt purchase a ticket for the birthday boy because he will be 2 when we arrive. The very last day of the trip is his 3rd birthday. Can he go to BBBoutique without a park ticket?

    Greetings to you, Jennifer!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for coming to us with your inquiry. That's so exciting that you have a trip to the Disneyland Resort planned for your son's birthday! My wife and I did the same thing with our daughter right before she turned three and I still remember the happiness and wonder on her face when she saw her favorite princesses come to life before her eyes.

    As you know, children under three years of age do not require a ticket to enter the Parks. But the fantastic news is that, as long as your son is two on the first day of your visit, he will not need a ticket for the length of your stay and is a "guest of Mickey." This includes his special makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique and I confirmed with a Cast Member that no ticket scan is needed there, so he should be all set! Reservations can be made 60 days in advance, so I hope you were able to secure them. 

    Here are some tips I like to recommend for toddlers:

    Fun Fact: it was a merry-go-round in Griffith Park that first inspired Walt Disney to build Disneyland. So if you ride the Carrousel with your son, see if you can spot the lead horse Jingles, and take note of the flags around the Carrousel, each representing a Knight of the Round Table! 

    Jennifer, I hope you found this helpful for your upcoming trip. There aren't that many un-birthdays left before your son turns three! On behalf of all of us at planDisney, we hope you all have a spectacular time at the Disneyland Resort! Visit us again anytime!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
