    Our granddaughter turns 3 midweek after we arrive at Disneyworld. Does she qualify for the 2 year old no ticket purchase? Is any birthday verification required?

    Hello Laura!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your first question! 

    You must be very excited about visiting the place where dreams come true with your granddaughter! Seeing the Walt Disney World Resort through their eyes is definitely a special experience.

    Please consider your granddaughter’s age on the first day of your vacation. You will not be required to purchase tickets for her because she turns 3 during your visit. Also, please note that birthday verification is usually not requested.

    Laura, there are so many things to do with little ones at the Walt Disney World Resort! Make sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app, link your tickets and make FastPass+ selections. Although your granddaughter won’t have a ticket, if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel she will have her own MagicBand and will be able to join you in attractions for which you have a made a FastPass+ selection for if she has the minimum required height for it.

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning and that your granddaughter has a wonderful birthday celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Best magical wishes,
