    I booked a trip in October my Daughter turns 3 only a couple weeks before we arrive. Since I am booking and paying for my vacation at the time she is 2 what are the consequences of saying she is 2 when she really will be 3 by the time we get there??

    Hi Amanda,

    When you book a Walt Disney World vacation, you book using the ages guests will be at the time of check-in, not ages at the time of booking. Cast Members can ask for age verification for every guest. I know when my children were teetering on the 2/3 year old range, Cast Members would ask them how old they were because they know children tend to answer honestly. I know my kids always answered with their real age. I also carried a copy of their birth certificates with us, just in case.

    You'll need to purchase a child's admission for your daughter for this vacation. If you don't purchase it ahead of time, you'll be asked to purchase it as you enter the theme park, which will only delay your fun for the day. 

    Please let us know if you have any other questions, Amanda!

    Have a Disney day,
