Strollers are now permitted in the galleries. Guests are welcome to use their own strollers, excluding jogging strollers and double strollers. There are a limited number of complimentary strollers available to check out from coat check. For guests with relatively larger strollers, staff may ask you to leave them behind if they are determined to be too large for the galleries; stroller parking accommodations are limited, so we recommend that you leave your strollers in your vehicle if they exceed the stroller size limit.
The Walt Disney Family Museum is accessible to wheelchair users. Visitors can use the ramp at the left side of the front entrance. Closed Caption and Open Caption accommodations are available in the galleries, too.
Closed Caption Accessibility
The museum offers on-demand closed captioning for some audio experiences in the museum. See the ticket desk for more information.
Foreign-language Audio Guides
Audio guides are available in French, German, Japanese, Mandarin, and Spanish, and are complimentary with paid admission.
Auditory and Sensory Processing Sensitivities
For guests that may be overstimulated by the volume of some exhibits, noise-cancelling headphones are available for loan at the ticket desk and special exhibit hall on a first-come first-serve basis.
Complimentary coat and bag checks are available in the lower level of the museum. All backpacks, parcels, and large bags must be checked. Umbrellas may be left at the front door in umbrella stands. For lost items, see security or call 415.345.6843.

Ticket Purchase Policies
No refunds and no exchanges. (See Donate Program or Event Tickets section below.)
There is a limit of six* tickets available for purchase per household, unless otherwise stated, for any ticketed program or event, including non-paid ticketed programs and events. The museum reserves the right to void tickets purchased in excess of this limit.
*In some instances, the museum will impose lower limits based on capacity of venue and/or special considerations.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of programs events at the museum, tickets often sell out quickly. The museum does not collect waitlists for programs or events; however, if tickets to a sold-out program or event become available, they will be released for purchase on the museum’s website at 10am the day before the event.
Donate Program or Event Tickets
If you have purchased tickets to a program or event and you are not able to attend, you can now donate your tickets back to the museum for resale. You may donate your tickets until 10am two days before the program or event and receive a record of your tax-deductible contribution equivalent to the ticket price. To donate your tickets back, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating the confirmation number for the original ticket purchase. You will be sent a donation receipt via email once your unused tickets have been accepted for donation back to the museum.
Please note the museum is not able to accept tickets for donation after 10am two days prior to the program or event. We cannot accept donations of tickets over the phone or in person.
