    Is there an age restriction on staying in the resorts? A friend of mine and I want to go at the end of July, but we are 19 and 18 years old. Would we be able to stay in a resort or do we need to find somewhere to stay?

    Hi Jess -

    At the request of my 14-year old daughter, I've asked this question at WDW several times. I think she reeeeally wants to go to Walt Disney World on her own :-)

    The answer is good news for you. Guests need to be 18 years old to check into a room on their own, so you and your friend will be fine staying at a Disney resort hotel.

    As information for others - guests can stay in a room alone if they are younger as long as they have someone at least 18 be responsible for the check-in and payment of the room. This often happens with sports teams or musical group who travel to WDW. The chaperone will be in one room, while the team members camp out in several other nearby rooms.

    Enjoy your Disney visit!
