    How old do you have to be to check in and stay

    Hiya Jaime,

    Welcome to planDisney! One of my favorite things about Walt Disney World Resort is that no matter if you are young or young at heart, the magic is meant for all to share. At every stage of my life, I have always found Walt Disney World to be a fantastic place to visit and enjoy.

    Now as I say this, there is a minimum age for Guests looking to book a room at a Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel. The minimum age for the primary Guest booking and checking in to a resort hotel is 18 years old. Guests under 18 require an adult present at check-in to secure the room and place a credit card on file for incidentals and billing.

    I hope this was helpful, Jamie. As you prepare for your visit in a few weeks, I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app if you haven’t already. What I love about the app is that it can unlock your resort hotel room! It is perfect for when your MagicBand or room key is at the bottom of your park bag, and your hands are full.

    Please come back and see us if you need anything else!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.

Meet the Panelist: Ashley, Texas

Hey Y'all! I’m Ashley and I live in Texas. My family and I love trying out the yummy snacks (DOLE Whip anyone!) and taking full advantage of our resort days. When we are not piloting the Millennium Falcon, exploring Kilimanjaro Safaris, or watching fireworks, you can find me planning our next adventure to Walt Disney World! I am so excited that you are planning a trip, and I look forward to helping you dig a little deeper and find the magic in all of the wonders of Walt Disney World Resort. Learn More About Ashley
