    Hi there, I will have my 2 year grandson with me on our visit in October 2023. I have purchased all adult tickets that will be visiting however unsure if I need to register him without a ticket since he's 2 and no purchase of ticket required?

    Hi Marina,

    How exciting!  You will be visiting with your grandson in just a couple of weeks!  Some of my best vacation memories have come from multi-generational travel and I hope you are able to make some Magical memories of your own.

    You will be happy to know that your grandson will be a Guest of Mickey and does not need  separate theme park tickets, nor Theme Park Reservations.  Additionally, if you purchase Disney Genie+ Service and use the Lightning Lane entrances for certain attractions, he will be able to go along with you as long as he meets the height requirement if there is one.

    However, if you make any Disney Dining Reservations you should make sure to include him in the total number of Guests in the reservation.  The reason for this is because there are capacity limits for buildings and each Guest needs to be counted, even if he shares a plate with an adult or "eats for free" at a character meal.  The same is true if you have a reservation at a Disney Resort hotel, he will need to be listed as an occupant of the room due to capacity limitations.

    Since you will be traveling with adults and at least one child, I wanted to let you know about Disney's Rider Switch service which is available at many attractions.  Click on the previous link to read all about how one person can wait with a child and then switch off with another person to experience the attraction without having to re-enter the standby queue.  One of the best perks about this service is that the person who was waiting with the child won't have to ride alone when it is their turn.  They get to take another person with them, so this means someone in the group gets to go twice if they want!

    Another service that I want to let you know about are the Baby Care Centers located in each of the 4 theme parks.  These facilities are much more than a place to change your little guy!  Even if you are not sure that your family may use a Baby Care Center, I highly encourage you to locate it on the map and stop in when you are in the area so you know what is available to your family.

    I hope your upcoming vacation is filled with pure joy and Pixie Dust!  If you have any more questions, please come back and visit us here again at planDisney.  We are always happy to help you plan your Magical adventure.

    See Ya Real Soon,
