    I am flying my daughter in the morning of her 21st birthday so we can spend the day at Epcot. Our state does not issue the new ID cards before the actual 21st birthday so all she will have is a renal paper stapled to her current id. Will that work for her?

    Hi Betsy! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh my goodness, a 21st birthday at Walt Disney World! How cool is that? I’m not much of a drinker, but I’ll tell you, there are some DELICIOUS cocktails available at Walt Disney World. But my favorite is easily the Violet Sake from Garden House at the Japan Pavillion in EPCOT. It’s so different from anything you’ve ever tried before and is super refreshing on a hot day in the parks. I think you and your daughter will really like it!

    Guests 21 years and older are eligible to purchase alcoholic beverages throughout Walt Disney World but must present one of the following acceptable forms of identification:

    • U.S. state driver’s license
    • U.S. state ID
    • U.S. military ID
    • Original passport
    • Copy of passport (either on paper or captured on a mobile device), along with a government-issued photo ID** that can verify the person and birth date shown on the copy
    • NEXUS card issued by U.S. Customs and Border Patrol

    So, in your daughter's case, so long as her ID shows her date of birth and is not expired, she will be able to use it to purchase alcoholic drinks. However, I might recommend bringing a backup option just in case!

    Betsy, did you know that you’ll be visiting during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival? Perfect timing, right? There are so many delicious drinks and dishes to enjoy, all inspired by cuisine from all over the globe. I definitely recommend checking out the Foodie Guide on Disney Parks Blog for a sneak peek of the festival menu before you get there. This way, you can make a list of all of the drinks you’d like to try so you can make sure you don’t miss out on anything!

    I can't wait for your mother/daughter adventure to begin! I just know you two will make memories that will last a lifetime!
