    My grankids will be 2 days shy of their 3rd birthday when we visit. Do we have to show birth certificates for them to have free admission?

    Hi Shari,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. First and foremost, happy early birthday to your Grand-Mouseketeers! A visit to Walt Disney World sounds like the perfect early birthday present for your sweet little ones.

    As you know, children under age 3 receive free admission to Walt Disney World’s theme parks, and I can certainly understand wanting to be sure you can take advantage of this! I’m a momma to a kiddo who is always mistaken for being older than she is, and I have never been asked to show proof of age for my children at Walt Disney World. I do recommend carrying a copy of their birth certificates just in case (probably a good idea anyway if you’ll be flying), because it would not be magical to be asked and not have the proper ID! I want your magical birthday adventure to be smooth sailing so you can focus on the fun and enjoy your together time, so I would pack that copy just for peace of mind.

    I hope you all have the best time together, Shari! Be sure to stop at Guest Relations to pick up Celebration Buttons for your whole party – these are a great way to share that you’re celebrating a special day, and I love getting birthday greetings and wishes from Cast Members and fellow Guests. If you have dining reservations, a fun way to add birthday magic is to order a cake to be brought to your table, or you can pick up delicious, over-the-top cupcakes from most of the bakeries and sweet shops around the parks. I love asking Cast Members to recommend their favorite treats – they always have the inside scoop! Enjoy every minute of your time with your grandchildren.

    Wishing you all a magical birthday celebration,
