    My kid is tall & husky for his age (2). We have gotten a lot of pushback when people don't believe he is 2 from other places. What do I need to bring to prove he is 2 when asked? I prefer not to have to bring a birth certificate with us.

    Hi there, Tricia. Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for dropping by to chit-chat with me about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Tricia, from my experience, Mickey Mouse is a pretty trusting guy. I have never experienced or seen anyone else for that matter experience any pushback when it comes to a child's age. Cast Members have asked ages before and typically the parent answers and that's the end of it. I personally wouldn't be too worried about this. However, to ease your mind, you could always make a copy of your son's birth certificate or passport if he has one. Anything with his name or age on it just to show in case you run into any problems while you are on vacation. I highly doubt you'll need to pull it out to show anyone but it doesn't hurt to have it on hand - but just a copy will do. 

    Since kids under the age of 3 don't need a Walt Disney World Theme Park ticket, when you arrive at the turnstiles to enter the park you'll simply scan your ticket and then walk or carry your son in right alongside you. If anyone is going to ask his age, this would be the place. All you'll need to do is tell the Cast Member working that he is 2 and you'll be on your way.

    Did you know that kids under the age of 3 can also dine for free at Walt Disney World? I always really appreciated this when my daughter was younger. At all-you-care-to-enjoy restaurants, your son is welcome to have as many of his own plates to enjoy during the meal. At sit-down restaurants where you order one entree from a menu, your son is welcome to plate share with anyone at the table for free. If, at these places, you'd like to order him his own meal, only then would you need to pay. When my daughter was 2, we did a lot of character meals for this reason because they are mostly all-you-care-to-enjoy and a little bit on the pricier side. So having her along for those without having to pay for her saved a lot of money throughout the week! 

    I hope this helps ease your mind, Tricia. If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'd love to help. 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
