    My daughter will be turning 3 during our trip. What do I need to bring to show that she is only 2 upon our arrival?

    Hi Jamie!

    How exciting to be celebrating a big 3rd birthday while at Walt Disney World.   I can't think of a more magical place to spend the day.  Be sure to pick up a "Happy Birthday" button at any Guest service location when you arrive, it's sure to bring your princess many smiles and well wishes during your visit.

    Jamie,  the age of your daughter on the day you begin your vacation is the age Disney will go by for your entire stay. I have visited many time when my children were under 3 years-old and have never been asked for proof of age.  You could always carry a copy of their birth certificate with you if you want to be on the safe side, but I don't think you will be asked to show it.

    Thanks for stopping by with your fantastic question.  If you need any more help please let me know. I love to help fellow Disney-loving families have the most magical time possible while on vacation.

    Have a Magical Day,
