    We'll be visiting in October with my 2 and 7 year old. My daughter will celebrate her third birthday at the parks. I understand she doesn't need a park ticket if she is 2 when our visit begins, but will she need a Halloween party ticket?

    Hi there, Brooke! Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am overjoyed that you are bringing your family to the Happiest Place on Earth this fall!

    Celebrating a birthday in the parks certainly makes for some magical memories! You will want to stop by City Hall when you first enter Disneyland Park to pick up a complimentary birthday button for your daughter. This will garner her lots of well wishes from Cast Members which are sure to leave her beaming from ear to ear.

    Your youngest does not require a theme park ticket if you have booked a vacation package and she is under 3 years old at the time of check-in. If you are purchasing your theme park tickets separately (not part of a package), then she will need a ticket on the day she turns 3 and the days after. Furthermore, since the tickets for Mickey's Halloween Party are for individual days, if she is 3 years old on the day you plan to attend the festivities, then she will also need a Mickey's Halloween Party ticket.

    Halloween Time brings all sorts of ghoulish fun to the Disneyland Resort, and this year you can even experience special offerings at Disney California Adventure Park! You will definitely want to check out Cars Land as it will have a complete Haul-O-Ween overlay to become Radiator Screams. From trick-or-treating to the Halloween Screams Fireworks to spooky overlays on Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain, so much excitement awaits you this October! Have a fabulous trip!
