    My youngest child is going to be 3 years old in January 2020. I’m planning a vacation to Disneyland in December, would I need to purchase a ticket for her? Thank you so much for the help!

    Hi Cassi!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. That is such a fun age to go and explore The Happiest Place on Earth and I know you and your family are going to have a magical time!

    Any Guests under the age of three do not require a ticket for admission. As you'll be visiting in December 2019 and your little one won't celebrate her 3rd birthday until after your visit, you do not need to purchase a ticket for her. I do want to give you some pointers for visiting at this practically perfect age. Under the age of three, your little one will also not be charged at any restaurant that is all you care to enjoy. This is a great thing to take advantage of especially for Character Dining Experiences. A note for visiting with a little one, while you won't be charged they should be included in the Dining Reservation headcount. This way the restaurant can plan accordingly in making sure a large enough table is planned for your party. 

    I hope this is helpful in getting ready for your holiday trip later this year! Please come back and see us again if we can help in any other way.

My name is Lindsey and I'm a wife, mommy, engineer and self-proclaimed "Disnerd!" I've always loved Disney and the joy it brings to so many people. I've been to Disney more times than I can count, but I found an even greater passion for all things Disney after discovering runDisney events. There is no better motivation to train for a race than a trip to the most magical place on earth! Learn More About Lindsey
