    We will be arriving at Disney World in May 6th, for a week. Our son will be (almost) 2.5 years old- but e is quite tall for his age (most people think he’s 4). Should we bring a copy of his birth certificate, since under 3 doesn’t require park passes?

    Hi there, Kristin! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    In no time at all you will be arriving for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I know you are thrilled to be so close to your magical week-long trip!

    I have traveled many times to the Walt Disney World Resort with my two little ones. As a matter of fact, our next trip will be the first time in years that we are visiting our favorite vacation destination without a kiddo 2-years-old or younger! I have never been asked to show proof that my son or daughter is younger than 3-years-old. With that said, both of my kids are pretty average-sized for their ages. If you are worried that this will be an issue for you since your son is so tall, it might be a good idea to bring a copy (not the original) of his birth certificate for peace of mind. But like I said, I've never had an issue at all when it came to my 2-year-old being considered a "Guest of Mickey."

    Enjoy every wonderful memory you make on your vacation, Kristin! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have!
