    Good morning, we are planning a Disneyland trip in September. We are planning a five day stay at the park, 3 of those days our youngest will be two years old, then she will turn three while there. How do we navigate the ticket purchases.

    Hiya Josh!

    Welcome to planDisney! And thanks for stopping by with a question for us. 

    A bibbidi bobbidi birthday trip is as magical as it gets! Your sweet Mouseketeer will have the greatest time experiencing all the magic of The Happiest Place on Earth! To me, nothing beats experiencing the magic of Disney through my kiddos’ eyes. 

    Josh, I’m happy to tell you if your little princess is two yEARs old at the beginning of your trip, she will remain a Guest of Mickey Mouse and will not need a ticket to enter the parks, even when she turns 3 during the trip! Do be sure to add your Mouseketeer to all your dining reservations, as Cast Members will be happy to bring a high chair when necessary. 

    You can begin planning your magical vacation to The Happiest Place on Earth on the Disneyland Resort website. There, you’ll want to either decide if you’d like to opt for a Vacation Package with tickets and a hotel stay or standalone Disneyland Resort tickets; either way, do be sure to make your theme park reservations, as they’re required, along with tickets to enter the theme parks. You are now able to make these 120 days prior to your trip and you can find the theme park availability calendar here

    Your little one will find many attractions suitable for her to enjoy, and for the bigger Mouseketeers, be sure to use the Rider Switch service, so everyone gets to enjoy the attractions of their choice without spending a lot of time waiting. I would also encourage you to take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located at both parks if need be. They are great places to change and feed little ones and provide a wonderful and peaceful area to relax. 

    I hope you have the most enchanting time together, Josh!
