    Do I need to make a park reservation for my 2 year old when we go to Disneyland and California Adventure?

    Hi Stacey! Thanks for dropping by planDisney.

    Guests under the age of three visit Disneyland Resort without an admission ticket, so you don't need to worry about a theme park reservation. In fact, there's no way to make one without a ticket! However, if you will be making any dining reservations for your visit at one of the tasty dining locations in Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park, be sure to include your little one in the number count for the reservation.

    We visited as much as we could before our boys were three. They don't remember those early visits, but we certainly do! They're cherished memories. We love looking back at the Disney PhotoPass Photos from those visits when the boys were tiny. I was just looking at some today. We even have several of them framed. The photographers really are talented at capturing your special moments, and everyone in the group gets to be in the picture!

    If you're curious about what Attractions might be a good fit for your little one, check out the Young Families filter on the Attractions page. It's a really helpful starting point for a visit. Also, the Baby Care Centers are a really useful spot for a diaper change if your little one still needs those facilities.

    Have a magical day.
