    Do I have to bring proof that my child is 2 years old?


    Thanks for asking a question to planDisney!

    While I would be extremely impressed if your 2-year-old had a driver's license, no, you do not have to bring proof that your child is 2 years old!

    As you know, in many different experiences like purchasing park tickets or dining at a buffet like Chef Mickey's, Disney does not require, or even expect you to pay for your under-3 youngster. They also don't expect you to come equipped with proof to that effect. So, you should be all set and ready to go.

    BONUS TIP #1
    While you don't have to pay for an under 3-year-old at select Disney buffet meals, you do want to include them on your reservation request, so that you are seated at a table that has adequate room for your entire party.

    BONUS TIP #2
    A lot of parents don't know about the availability of the Baby Care Centers in each of the theme parks. These complimentary venues have changing tables, rooms for nursing, and a lounge area with couches and a TV tuned to Disney Junior. It can be the best place for a toddler to reset for the day.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
