    Hello, My son is 2 and will not be 3 years old before our trip to Disney. Am I required to bring a copy of his birth certificate with me to the parks?

    Hi Katelyn!

    I'm so happy to help you get ready for your magical vacation with your little one! There is nothing like experiencing the joy of Disney through your little one's eyes. Both of my boys have been to visit Mickey when they were two years old and we made incredible memories with them. Be sure to consider adding Memory Maker to your vacation so you can capture and save all of the memories you make together as a family during your trip!

    One of the awesome things about bringing your little one on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation is that Guests who are under 3 years old are special Guests of Mickey Mouse and receive complimentary admission to the theme parks! So your little one won't need a theme park admission ticket since he will be two years old during your vacation. You won't need to bring his birth certificate with you to get into the theme parks, you will just need to let the Cast Members at the admission gates know that he is 2 years old and he will be able to enter the theme park with the rest of your family!

    Keep in mind that if you are flying to Walt Disney World Resort, I recommend that you check with your airline to confirm the identification you will need for your little one to fly. If you need to bring his identification with you for your flight, I recommend that you keep it securely in your hotel room while you visit the theme parks as you won't need it during your theme park days!

    Come back to see us if we can help you again as you continue planning your vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
