    Do we need to carry a physical ID for the entry to the theme parks? My reservations for both days are already showing on the My Disney Experience app.


    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just TWO days away! It’s time to get packed because you’re about to get this show on the road! 

    Spring is in full bloom and bursting with color at the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival where you will find beautiful topiaries, stunning gardens, outdoor kitchens, and even a butterfly garden. This is one of my favorite festivals and I love to stroll taking in all of the beauty while indulging in the delicious treats that are inspired by the season’s blooms.

    If you find yourself needing a break from the excitement of the Theme Parks, head on over to Disney Springs. This vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment district offers a plethora of options for dining, entertainment, and shopping. From world-class restaurants to unique boutiques and live entertainment, there's something for everyone to enjoy at Disney Springs.

    Now, onto the ID portion of your question. While adults are generally not required to show ID to enter the theme parks since Theme Park tickets are generally loaded in your My Disney Experience Account, there are instances where it may be necessary. If you plan to purchase an alcoholic beverage at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, you may be asked to show identification. Additionally, guests visiting from outside of the United States will need to present a valid passport and another form of government-issued photo ID from their country of origin. The same applies upon check-in if you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    Furthermore, guests age 18 and up will need to present a photo ID for proof of Florida residency when activating Florida Resident tickets, or a military ID to activate military tickets.  

    In short, while carrying your ID may not be essential for entry to the theme parks, it's a good idea to have it with you.

    I hope you have the best time!
