    Does my 2 year old need a Genie + pass or she just comes with me on the rides where I grab those for?

    Hey there Nicole,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! My wife and I have two little ones and we have visited the parks multiple times with them when they were under 2 and each trip is filled with amazing memories! I'm so glad that you're planning a trip with your kiddo as well - you will have so much fun!

    Since children under 3 are admitted for free with an adult at the Disneyland Resort, this also applies to Disney Genie+ Service as well. If you have purchased Disney Genie+ Service for your ticket and book a Lightning Lane return time for an attraction that your little one is able to ride then you both will be able to use the Lightning Lane entry to experience the attraction!

    Additionally, if you're visiting with any other adults then you can also utilize the Rider Switch feature for attractions where your two-year-old might not be ready to ride yet. 

    One of our favorite amenities in the parks when we visited with our kiddos are the Baby Care Centers. These facilities are air conditioned, and offer things like a changing room with tables, toddler-size toilets, feeding area with highchairs, and a vending machine that offers multiple items you might need for a trip with little ones available for purchase. You can find the Baby Care Centers at the end of Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland Park and in San Fransokyo Square in Disney California Adventure Park.

    Thanks again for your question, Nicole! I hope you have a wonderful visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.
