    Do I need to buy a ticket for my almost 3 year old daughter (birthday is 10/28). If a ticket is not needed, do I need to bring her birth certificate? also, will she be able to ride the attractions being 2 years old? would she be riding in my arms?

    Hi Karol! Welcome to planDisney!

    You must be thrilled to visit the Walt Disney World Resort in less than one week! I have a huge smile on my face as I think about your toddler's eyes lighting up as she catches a glimpse of a familiar Character or experiences an attraction for the first time. Some of my favorite memories are from trips when my kids were that age. You will have the BEST time!

    I have good news for you! Since your daughter will turn 3-years-old after your vacation, you do not need a Walt Disney World theme park ticket for her. Guests ages 2 and under are considered Guests of Mickey Mouse. How awesome is that?! She will not need a Disney Park Pass reservation either, so you will only need tickets and reservations for the rest of your party. And no need to bring her birth certificate to the theme parks! I've never had to show one for my kids at all.

    You'll find there are a LOT of attractions that your little one can enjoy! Any attraction without a height requirement is suitable for all ages ... even infants! I found that my kiddos were able to sit next to me on most attractions at that age, but they also sat in my lap at times. Magic Kingdom Park has the most attractions for all ages, but you'll find plenty to do in all four theme parks!

    Keep in mind that all Guests ages 2 and up are required to wear appropriate face coverings at all indoor locations and on Walt Disney World transportation. It may be a good idea to start practicing now so your little one is ready for this adventure!

    I hope this helps, Karol! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
