    I am bringing my 2 year old to Disney World in April. She will be turning 3 shortly after our trip. Do I need to bring any proof of age?

    Hey there, Rebecca. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    I love the fact that Guests under the age of 3 are able to enter the Walt Disney World Theme Parks free of charge. I definitely took advantage of that when my daughter was a little girl. Rebecca, I think you'll be happy to know that Mickey Mouse is pretty trusting. You won't need to show any proof of age for your little one. When you go to the turnstiles to enter the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, you'll just scan your MagicBand, Keys to the World card, or your mobile phone and when Mickey lights up green you'll just escort your little one right along in with you. No questions asked. If it would make you feel better you could always just make a copy of your baby's birth certificate to have on hand but you honestly will not need it. I've never been asked to show proof of age for any little one traveling with me nor have any of my friends. 

    Rebecca, did you also know that your under the age of 3 child can dine for free at Walt Disney World Restaurants? This always worked out so well for me because my daughter ate like a little bird so paying for a whole meal for her would just be such a waste.  At all-you-care-to-enjoy places like Chef Mickey's, you are welcome to make your small child as many plates as they desire - free of charge! At places where you'll order a single entree off of a menu like The Plaza Restaurant at Magic Kingdom Park, your little one is able to plate share with anyone from the table. If at these places you'd like to order her a kid's meal of her own, only then would you be required to pay. My favorite way to use this "perk" if you will is with character meals. You are getting a meal and an experience but not having to pay for it for your little one. It's such a money and time saver if you'd like some pictures with your baby and characters. 

    I hope this helps, Rebecca. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to stop back by and ask me

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
