    Can I take my niece and nephews (7 & 5) and what’s the process? They are pass holders moving to Orlando. One mom is going to be out of town, the other getting the house settled. What if they use one of their parents fingerprints for entry?

    Hi, Jim! Thanks for coming back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're always so happy when our friends stop by for another chat!

    What an adventure your niece and nephew have ahead of them as brand new little Floridians! I just know they're going to love growing up next door to the Walt Disney World Resort. And I bet they'll have a great time visiting with their wonderful uncle, too!

    Jim, taking the little ones to Walt Disney World is as easy as a walk in the (Theme) Park. If the children already have their own Annual Passes, you don't need to do a thing. They'll either have MagicBands or admission cards linked to their passes, so they can just tap, scan their fingers, and go. If their parents haven't purchased Annual Passes for the kiddos yet, they can stop by the ticket windows at any of the Theme Parks or the new Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to buy and activate them before your big day.

    If you encounter problems with the finger scan, hakuna matata, Jim! No worries! The Cast Members can still verify that the children have valid Annual Passes. My fellow Moms Panelist Emille went through exactly this scenario. She notes that you can just explain the situation to the Cast Members and they'll work some Disney magic to ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the day.

    Jim, if you need some ideas about fun things to do with your little Mouseketeer pals, check out Disney's super helpful planning guide for preschool kids and little ones. With lists of rides and attractions perfect for young kids, must-see entertainment, and even a playlist of Disney Junior tunes, you'll be one prepared uncle!

    I hope this helps you have a ton of fun with your pint-sized guests, Jim. Please come by again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
