    I’m planning an upcoming visit to Disney parks with my two grandchildren. The youngest will be 2 years, 11 months in January during the time of of planned visits. Will I need to carry his birth certificate for “proof of age”?

    Hi Irene!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are getting ready for a family vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! I love visiting the "Most Magical Place on Earth" with my parents and my little ones because it's amazing to experience the magic of Disney as an entire family. Be sure to consider adding Memory Maker to your vacation so you can capture and save all of the magical moments you experience together during your trip!

    Little Mouseketeers who are under 3 years old are considered special Guests of Mickey Mouse and receive complimentary admission to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. That means your grandchild who is still two during your visit won't need tickets to enjoy the theme parks. You don't need to bring proof of his or her birth date with you and you simply need to let Cast Members know at theme park entrances and at FastPass+ queue entrances know that he or she is still 2 years old and they will be allowed to enjoy the theme parks and FastPass+ reservations with the rest of the family!

    Irene, be sure to take advantage of Rider Switch during your visit so everyone can enjoy the attractions on their "must-do" list. Rider Switch works really well for our family because the little ones don't need to wait in queues for attractions they won't be enjoying. Come back to see us if you have additional questions as your vacation approaches! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
