    How much are tickets for children 2yrs old and 5yrs old?

    Hi there, Kimberly, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I always enjoy helping my fellow Californians plan their next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    Theme park ticket pricing is divided into three different categories: Children under the age of 3, ages 3-9, and ages 10+. Luckily for you, children under the age of 3 receive complimentary admission! So, your 5-year-old will fit within the ages 3-9 category. Ticket pricing depends on several factors, including the length of your stay, and whether you’d like a 1-Park per day ticket, or a Park Hopper ticket. A Park Hopper will allow you to go back-and-forth between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park throughout your Disney days. You can customize your theme-park ticket selection online here.

    You can also choose to add Disney MaxPass to your tickets for the current price of $15 per day, per ticket. This is a great way to maximize your time in the parks, by allowing you to make digital Disney FASTPASS selections directly from your mobile device. So, if you were park hopping between Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, you could make a FASTPASS selection for one park while you’re still in the other – this is a great time-saver!

    Also, here’s a handy guide for visiting the parks with your little Mouseketeers, including an adorable toddler-friendly attraction map. Some of my children’s favorite attractions and shows include Disney Junior Dance Party!, Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind, Jessie’s Critter Carousel, Casey Junior Circus Train, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, “it’s a small world,” and Mickey and the Magical Map. Meeting Disney Princesses at Royal Hall is another one of our favorite experiences!

    I recommend taking advantage of the Baby Care Centers (there’s one in each park) to change or feed your littlest Mouseketeer. 

    Lastly, here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival date so you can start mapping out the magic!

    See ya’ real soon!

Meet the Panelist: Kristin, California

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
