    Planning our 3 day trip to Disney. My daughter will be 2 years old for one of the days and we will be celebrating her 3rd birthday the following two days. Do I need to purchase a two day pass for her?

    Greetings, Chris!

    How wondEARful! Visiting the Disneyland Resort is such a fantastic way to celebrate your little princess's birthday! There are two pathways into a transitional birthday like your daughter's. First, if you book a vacation package, which includes at least a hotel stay and park tickets in the package, the age of each guest is locked in as of the first day of the package. In that case, a two-year-old that turns three during the vacation would not require a park ticket for the duration of the vacation package period. The second pathway is with ticket-only visits or when tickets are purchased separately from hotel accommodations. In those cases, guests ages three and over will require tickets for each day they visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks. Guests ages three through nine generally have a rate that is discounted versus the rate for guests ages 10 and over. Children age two and under do not require park tickets. They are always guests of Mickey Mouse! If you are not booking a vacation package, you may be interested in offers and discounts available now. They include a limited-time special ticket offer for most days from now through May 23, 2019. Note that prices are subject to change and blockout days may apply.

    I wish a very happy birthday to your daughter, Chris! And a very merry un-birthday to the rest of your party. May you all have a magical time visiting the Disneyland Resort. Please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any additional questions you may have.
