    My son will turn 3 the day we were planning to go to Disneyland. Do I need to purchase a child ticket for him? I know if I were to go the day before for his first day I do not need to.

    Hello Lyndsie,

    Thank you for bringing us your question here to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you are having a magical day.

    I’m so excited for your upcoming trip to The Happiest Place on Earth. Seeing the Disney Parks through your child’s eyes is magical - it’s where dreams come true! Young Mouseketeers under three years of age may enter the theme parks for free but once they reach age 3 they will need to have a Child Theme Park Ticket for admission.

    If you plan on going for his birthday, be sure to stop by City Hall (Guest Services) to get him a free ‘It’s my birthday’ button to wear during his special day; Cast Members that see him wearing the button will be sure to send him birthday wishes throughout the day.

    I hope this helps. Please write me back if you have any more questions before your trip to The Happiest Place on Earth. 

    Sending your son lots of birthday wishes & pixie dust for his big day!
