What if my discounted Group Tickets have expired?

The value of your expired group rate tickets can be applied to the purchase price of the current season’s group rate tickets. Expired group rate tickets only retain value between seasons of the same calendar year.

Does each person in the group need a ticket to get into the park?

Yes, everyone age two and above is required to have an admission ticket to enter the park. We suggest that group leaders distribute a ticket to every group member before entering the park to speed up park entry.

What is the Sunny Day Guarantee?

Sunny Day Tickets are issued if it rains continuously for one hour while a guest is in the park. Guests who leave the park during the time it rains may trade their admission ticket at Guest Relations for a Sunny Day Ticket to return at a future date. If the continuous rain occurs during twilight hours, a Twilight Sunny Day Ticket will be offered. Guests will receive one Sunny Day Ticket per every paid admission ticket turned in. Complimentary guests are excluded from this offer.

If you leave without exchanging your tickets, you will forfeit the Sunny Day Ticket.

What is the price for parking?

General parking: $18
Preferred parking: $20
VIP parking: $30
Bus parking (located in our General parking lot): FREE (September 24, 2016 - January 1, 2017)

Due to safety and maneuverability concerns, the only approved Bus drop off/pick-up area is in the General Parking Lot near the exit gate. Buses are not permitted in the Preferred Parking Lot. Complimentary admission is provided to your bus driver on the day of your visit, when a CDL is presented at Guest Relations.

Can I bring a cooler?

Soft-sided coolers 10"x10"x12" or smaller are permitted in the park for storage of baby formula, baby food and medically necessary items.  Sealed non-alcoholic beverages and small single-serve snack sized items such as chips, pretzels, cookies, whole fruit, and pre-made sandwiches are also allowed.  All other outside food is not permitted in the park. For food allergy concerns, please contact for accommodations.  Glass items including bottles and containers are not permitted in the park.

Can I bring a picnic lunch?

Two picnic areas are available outside the park, one in the Preferred Parking Lot and the other in the General Parking Lot. Barbecues and charcoal grills are prohibited in the Sesame Place parking lot and picnic areas.

What if I need to leave the park? Can I get back in?

Yes. Before leaving the park, be sure to get your hand stamped on your way out.

What if someone in my group is lost?

There is no personal paging at the park. Group leaders should periodically check Lost Parents and First Aid for members of their group. Lost Parents and First Aid are located near Cookie's Cafe, by the Sunny Day Carousel. You may also want to set-up a designated group "meeting area" inside or outside of the park, prior to your visit.

Can I save a spot in line for other group members at attractions or shows?

Line cutting or saving a space in line for other group members is prohibited. Those found line cutting are subject to removal from the park.
