    Jen from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I am purchasing tickets in advance for a small b-day party, and I may need to change one of the names as we get closer to the actual date. If I call to change the name on the ticket, do I need to change the reservation too? The number going is not changing

    Hello Jen! 

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for dropping by with your question! 
    Even if you decide to bring someone new, it is not necessary to change the name on the theme park ticket ahead of your visit. That’s because upon arrival a Cast Member will take a picture of the person using each ticket. Then, the ticket is associated with the person in the picture, not the name on the ticket. So, leave everything just as it is and head straight to the turnstiles when you arrive! 

    Celebrating a birthday with a trip to the Disneyland Resort is such a wonderful idea! I love celebrating special occasions at Disneyland because everyone is celebrating with me! Be sure to, stop by Guest Relations where you can request a complimentary birthday button! And, since you’re not the only one celebrating, ask for an “I’m Celebrating” button for every member of your group! Cast Members love to acknowledge special occasions and the buttons let them know that you’re celebrating! 

    Thanks again for stopping by! Enjoy your visit to “The Merriest Place on Earth!”

Greetings from San Diego, CA! I'm a wife, cat mom and Disney-loving "childfree millennial." I've traveled all around the world, but my favorite place to visit is "The Happiest Place on Earth!" I've been going to the Disneyland Resort for over 25 years. Each time I step through the turnstiles to enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy, I feel the magic of Walt Disney's original park. I can't wait to answer your questions and help you experience all that the Disneyland Resort has to offer! Learn More About Tiffanie
