    Hello, we will be purchasing a FL 3 day pass. My daughter is two and will be turning 3 while on vacation. Do I need to purchase a ticket for her?

    Hi Marivel!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Oh Boy, your daughter is going to have a very happy birthday indeed! Definitely pick up a complimentary birthday celebration button for her and "I'm Celebrating" buttons for everyone else in this princess's posse. Celebration buttons are available from any shop, Table-Service dining location, Guest Relations location or Disney Resort Hotel. Simply ask a Cast Member for a family set of buttons and they'll gladly assist!

    Mouseketeers under the age of three-years-old are not required to purchase a ticket for entry to Walt Disney World Resort. Preschool guests who happen to celebrate this milestone birthday mid-trip are still a guest of Mickey and are considered for the whole visit to be the age they were when they first arrived. So no, a ticket will not be required for your daughter this time.

    Pro Tips: Since your mini Minnie won't have a theme park ticket, there won't be an official way to make FastPass+ reservations for her. Instead, she'll be welcome to join you and anyone else in your party for any attractions or character experiences already reserved where she meets the height requirements. Do be sure to include her in the head count of any Table-Service dining reservations you choose to make. And lastly, definitely remember this special occasion by utilizing Disney's PhotoPass Service - photographers all over the parks are waiting to capture perfect memories for you and your family of this special birthday.

    And lastly, checkout some top tips from our panel of experts on how to Disney with a preschooler!

    Happy Birthday to your little one again, Marivel, and We'll See You Real Soon!
