    Do I need to bring ID my children if we are buying their tickets in advance? The older children need ID to fly, but the younger do not. What does Disney require? Thanks!

    Disney does not require any specific identification for children. I have been to Walt Disney World dozens of times with my children since their babyhood - and my oldest is now 13. i have never needed to show ID for the kids at any point during my Disney travels. Once children are old enough for a driver's license or other state-issued ID, they should carry that with them as a matter of course, but otherwise Disney will take your word on their age.

    The one exception to this is if you are redeeming a Give A Day, Get A Disney Day certificate. In this case, children do need to show a passport or birth certificate in order to be allowed free admission into the park.

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World!
