    Do I need to bring a birth certificate to prove that my toddler is under 3 years of age?

    Hi, Jennifer!

    Mickey is a very trusting Mouse, and he will take your word that your little one is under the age of 3 when entering the gates of any theme park. No need to bring along any proof of age or identification for your child. Kids under 3 will not require a theme park ticket. There is child ticket pricing for kids age 3-9, then any guest age 10 or older requires an adult priced ticket. 

    When dining at any location, your child under the age of 3 can share off your plate for no extra charge. If you choose to order a kids meal, this will be at regular menu price. I found sharing with my kids was fine at buffets or family style dining locations, but I usually ordered them kids meals at most Table Service and Quick Service locations so they could enjoy their own drinks and have "kid" food (chicken nuggets were a must when my kids were 2!)

    With a little one in your travel party, you will want to plan on a stroller. Feel free to bring a stroller from home, or rentals are available in each of the theme parks. Make sure to mark your stroller with a ribbon or balloon so you can find it easily in the stroller parking areas. 

    Wishing you a magical visit to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
