    I'm purchasing WDW tickets soon, My daughter's bday is in the middle of the trip. She will 2 when we arrive but turns 3 on our second day of visiting. I want to buy 4 day hopper for the rest of the family but unsure of what to do with her.

    Howdy Chevy!

    What a magical birthday your daughter will have.   I can't imagine a more appropriate place to celebrate.  I hope you make memories that will last a lifetime.

    I have some great news,  the age your child is when you begin your reservation or start using your ticket is the age Disney will consider her for the entire trip.   Since your princess will be 2 years old in the middle of the trip you would not need to purchase her a ticket.   If she was turning 3 on the first day of your reservation or ticket use, she would need one.   Isn't that great news?

    Chevy, make you check out the Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones page.  It offers great tips for age appropriate attractions, the best Resort pools and much more.  It would be a great resource for you.  

    I hope you have the most wonderful vacation, and please wish your little one a happy birthday from all of us.
