    Got tickets off airmiles. One for my husband and me, and one for our toddler. I went to reserve dates & entered the ticket #s and names as they had them. It put my kid's name as the 10+ and my husband on the children's ticket. Will this matter?

    Hey there, Brianne, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    I'm happy to report that the names associated with each theme park ticket when you purchase them do not matter! When you arrive at the park entrance on the first day of your visit, a Cast Member will take a quick picture of each person that will then be paired with their corresponding ticket - and this is what will matter for the rest of your visit.

    In other words, you'll just need to make sure that each person is using the same ticket to scan in for the rest of your trip since it will have your picture that will pop up with it when you scan in. Since it's just the three of you, it doesn't sound like that will be too big of an issue, unless one of you splits off with your toddler for naptime and the other parent stays in the parks to get a few extra rides on the Incredicoaster. Speaking from experience here!

    In a case like this, you'll just want to make sure that each parent has their assigned ticket so that the one who leaves with your little one for naptime has both tickets to scan back into the park. Again, speaking from experience! We forgot to do this on one of our trips and had to meet up outside the parks. Now we both just utilize the Disneyland mobile app and make sure we have access to all tickets on there, or you could even screenshot the tickets on both phones for easy access.

    Visiting the Disneyland Resort with toddlers is so much fun! We have been visiting the past few years with our little ones, and my biggest tip - if you're not already aware of it - is to utilize the Baby Care Centers. I've been visiting the parks my whole life, but only recently discovered how amazing these are for families with young kids. It's a great spot for a diaper change or potty break, and they have vending machines that have just about everything you could need - in case you forgot those extra wipes or need a quick snack option.

    Additionally, I would highly recommend spending some time in the newly reimagined Mickey's Toontown! They did such a great job making this entire land a place for kids to climb, crawl, and explore, and there are all kinds of great spots for a picnic!

    Thank you again for your question, Brianne! Please feel free to keep coming back with any of your other follow-ups. We'd love to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
