    I’m planning on taking my daughter for her third birthday! I would like to arrive the day before and spend her actual birthday at MK.Since we arrive the day before, do I need to buy a ticket for her? And if she doesn’t have a ticket, can she do BBB?

    Hi Andrea! Thank you for contacting planDisney!

    Wow! A third birthday at the Walt Disney World Resort! And to top it all off, the first day is Magic Kingdom Park! What a special trip! There are so many fun ways to celebrate a birthday at the resort. From arranging special decorations to be delivered to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel to planning a special dinner, there are so many ways to plus up your vacation to mark the occasion!

    If you have booked a vacation package to the Walt Disney World Resort, and you are arriving the day before your daughter turns three, she will be considered a Special Guest of Mickey Mouse and will not require theme park admission for the duration of your stay. Furthermore, she will not need Theme Park Reservations as there will not be a ticket connected to her. However, if you are purchasing tickets only for this trip, she will need a ticket and theme park reservation for every day she is visiting a park once she turns three. On the day before her birthday, she will not be required to have a ticket.

    Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is for Guests ages 3-12. Therefore, she would not be able to participate in this activity until she turns three. As such, I would suggest you plan this activity once she turns three years old. Watching my niece experience this is a core memory that I will never forget! It is definitely something special and worthy of a third birthday celebration! If you are booking this experience and you have a vacation package (and therefore she does not require theme park admission), you would simply book this experience under your name and indicate the number of children participating.

    I hope that your daughter has a truly magical third birthday celebration at the resort! Enjoy every moment!

    Growing old is mandatory, but growing up is optional,
