    Hello, If our two year old is a few weeks shy of 3 when we come to the park will he need a ticket? Also how will they know he is two?

    Hi there, Shaylyn! Thanks for taking the time to visit us on planDisney. 

    It looks like you’ll be visiting the Happiest Place on Earth with your little prince soon. I bet you’re excited to return to a land of Magic! As you probably figured, children under 3 years of age do not need a ticket (or park reservation) to enter the Disneyland Resort theme parks. So Shaylyn, rest assured that he will not need a park ticket for your upcoming trip if he is a few weeks shy of his third birthday. However, if your son happens to appear older than his age (say, he’s much taller than other 2-year-olds), it’s not a bad idea to bring a copy of his birth certificate. It’s not required but you can if you’d like. 

    I hope this information is helpful for you. As you continue to plan your upcoming trip, be sure to check out Disney Parks Blog or Disneyland.com for the latest park news. And please don’t hesitate to write us again if you have more questions. We’re all EARS!

    See ya real soon,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
