    Are 2 year olds free?

    Hey, Chelsea and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Do I detect a tiny Mouseketeer who is ready to meet Mickey and the gang? There is nothing more precious than a young prince or princess walking the streets that Walt Disney made so that "parents and children could have fun, together."

    Yes, Guests under the age of 3 years old may enjoy all the magic complimentary of Mickey Mouse but let us look at some ways to keep your young one (and you) happy.

    These are my Disney Dad Tips:

    You do not need to do everything in one day. When our kids were young, we would arrive early and leave during the afternoon for a nap then return for evening fun. They loved seeing the fireworks.

    We would rent strollers but after a while, we began to bring our own strollers because our kids were most comfortable in them.

    Make sure to have your theme park bag with all the necessities such as diapers, wipes, sunscreen, hat, and any food that will keep your little one comfortable.

    There are many attractions for Guests of any height. However, sometimes mom or dad want to go alone or with another child and should take advantage of Rider Switch.

    Baby Care Centers are the perfect place to cool off and recharge. You can feed your child, change them, and just relax for a bit from the heat and noise. They even have tiny potties for those in training.

    We have found that some kids love Disney Characters and some need a bit more time before they meet them.

    One thing is for sure, there is no age too young to experience the pixie dust.

    I hope this information helps you plan your next Disneyland Resort vacation. Please stop back by with more questions.

    Chelsea, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
