    Hello I’m new here! Do you need a Disney max pass for your child if they are under 3? I do want the photo downloads and not spend money on buying separately. But if I buy my own ticket with it does she qualify for my ticket? since she doesn’t need a ticke

    Greetings, Melissa!

    Thanks for bringing your questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for you and your little one to experience the joy and wonder of all the magic of the Disneyland Resort. Even the youngest infant and toddler Guests can enjoy the entertainment, attractions, and Characters in the parks.

    Children under three years old do not require park tickets, and therefore do not require Disney MaxPass if you choose to add this option to your ticket. They will just accompany you on these FASTPASS attractions without scanning a ticket since they are under three years old. There are a number of attractions that offer Disney FASTPASS that are safe and fun for the whole family such as Haunted Mansion, "it's a small world," and Toy Story Midway Mania! to name just a few.

    On the contrary, though, even if your child will not be eating off the menu at Table Service Restaurants as an infant or toddler, you will need to still add them to your dining reservation count. This is so there is room at the table for them (even if they will be utilizing a high chair).  I hope this helps!

    If your park ticket has the Disney MaxPass feature already added, Disney PhotoPass photographers can scan your Disneyland app account to add your photos. You will then have 45 days to download these photos free of charge from the app.

    Please return if you have any other questions. I'd be delighted to help you plan more details of your trips to the Happiest Place on Earth!
