    I'm a college student looking to visit WDW with my friends, what is the minimum age to check into a WDW resort? Thanks!

    Hello, Samantha, 

    Walt Disney World does require that the primary guest on any hotel reservation to be at least 18 years old, so if you or your friends have met that requirement, I think it's time to start planning a trip to Walt Disney World! To help with your planning, you and possibly your parents may like to read an article our own Disney Mom Erin wrote about her daughter's senior trip to Walt Disney World. If you do an internet search for Spring Break at Disney World - Teens' First No-Parent Trip by Erin Foster, you should easily find the article and its helpful information. And of course, we are here to help with any additional questions you might have.

    Happy planning!
