    Will I need to bring a birth certificate to prove my child is under 3 years of age?

    Hi Kendy!

    Welcome to planDisney! It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth with your Mouseketeer! Get ready to make memories you will cherish forever! There is nothing more special than experiencing the Walt Disney World Resort through the eyes of little ones, and I cannot wait for my almost 2-year-old to enjoy her first visit soon.

    As you are aware, children under the age of 3 are Mickey’s Guests so they do not require theme park tickets. I have an older daughter and we have never been requested to present her passport (I am an international visitor) or birth certificate while entering the parks. What I usually do is have a digital copy of my girls’ birth certificates and passports on my mobile phone just in case, and keep the original documents in the in-room safe.

    planDisney tip: Although children under 3 do not need theme park admission or Disney Park Pass reservations, remember that they must be included in dining reservations so restaurants may plan accordingly.

    I hope this information is helpful, Kendy! As you prepare for your visit, remember that all four theme parks offer Baby Care Centers where you can take your little one for a diaper change, a snack, a break, and even purchase items that we sometimes forget back at the hotel like sunscreen, baby food, and etc. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions and check our Panel Extras for more tips and advice!

    Best magical wishes,
