    My family is going celebrate my nephews birthday this month and we are taking 3 other kids. They are all 3 and younger. Do we have to take they’re birth certificate so they can get in for free?

    Hi there, Mayra, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I always enjoy helping my fellow Californians plan their next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, so let’s get started!

    I can’t think of a better place to celebrate your nephew’s birthday than at the Disneyland Resort! First off, be sure to start your day at Guest Relations, to nab a complimentary birthday button for your special Mouseketeer! 

    Children under the age of 3 don’t require a ticket, and are granted complimentary access into the theme parks. As for providing birth certificates for proof of age, you won’t need to worry about documentation at the Main Entrance turnstiles. Since my son was particularly tall at the age of 2, I was asked by several Cast Members for his age, but once I informed them of his actual age, I wasn’t asked for any additional information. 

    I recommend purchasing your theme-park tickets online, in order to save time on your arrival day. Under “Park Tickets”, for any of your 3-year-old Guests, you'll need to purchase a ticket in the ages 3-9 ticket category. You may want to check out some of the amazing offers currently available for Southern California Residents, and for Children – both of these deals offer a great value for three days of magic in the Disneyland Resort! Here’s a link to the Offers & Discounts page in case any of these additional offers may apply to your group, too. 

    Once inside the parks, I recommend visiting the Baby Care Centers. These Centers are the perfect spot for feeding, changing, or nursing little ones. You can also purchase any baby necessities you may have forgotten from the handy vending machines found in each Center. You can find the Disneyland Park location at the end of Main Street, U.S.A., and the Disney California Adventure Park location on Pacific Wharf.

    Please stop by with any additional planning questions, Mayra… I’m all EARs!
