    We are going to Disney World in Mid May. My daughter will still be two at the time of the trip, but will be turning 3 a few weeks later. Do we need to bring her birth certificate to prove her age since ages 2 and under don't require a ticket?

    Hi Jamie, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I am sure you are going to have a magical time with your daughter, it is a great age for her to visit Walt Disney World Resort.  

    For ages, Walt Disney World Resort typically relies on the honour system.  When my daughter was two, I was nervous because she had an advanced vocabulary, and although she was tiny, she sounded much older.  I was never asked for anything in terms of proof of age.  Because I was a worrier, I would bring a copy of her Passport and Birth Certificate, just in case, but I never needed them.  

    Please remember that even though your daughter does not require a Theme Park Ticket, she can still recieve a MagicBand.  When you customize your MagicBands there should be one for her as well.  She will not need FastPass+ Selections, just bring her along when you enter the FastPass+ queue.  On the other hand, when making Advanced Dining Reservations, she will need to be included in the total number of guests in your party.  The Dining Locations need to know how many people are in each party for safety reasons and to accurately prepare for each party.  

    I hope that helps, Jamie.  Please let us know if you have any other questions, we are always happy to assist in planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
