    We're planning on going to Disney California Adventure on November 10 and Disneyland November 11. My daughter will turn 3 on November 11 so do I have to buy her a ticket when we go to Disneyland the day of her birthday?

    Hello Angelica,

    I hope you're having a Magical day!

    A November trip means you'll be visiting in time for Holidays at the Disneyland Resort, which is so very exciting! Plus, your 3-year-old Princess will certainly have the time of her life celebrating her special day at the Disneyland Park.
    Quick tip-- you can schedule an appointment for her at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique where she can get a royal hairdo and the option to select her favorite princess dress. Plus, if you purchase a salon package, she gets front-of-the-line access to meet the Disney Princesses at Fantasy Faire!

    As far as whether or not you have to purchase a ticket for your daughter on the day of her 3rd birthday, I recommend you follow Disneyland Resort Ticket guidelines, which basically state that guests 3 years or older must have a valid ticket admission. The cast member at the Disneyland turnstile may not ask to verify your child's age but my take on this is, why break a rule at a place that encourages fairness for all?

    In the wise words of Jiminy Cricket-- "Always let your conscience be your guide."

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
