    Hello, planning to get out of the cold and bring my daughter around Christmas. She will be 2 at the time. Do I need to pack her birth certificate to show to prove she is under 3?

    Hi Victoria!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so excited to hEAR you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort with your daughter! December is my favorite time of yEAR to visit "The Most Magical Place on Earth" as all of the parks and resorts are beautifully decorated for the holiday season. It's just so magical!

    Children under the age of 3 do not require theme park admission as they are considered Guests of Mickey Mouse. You will not need to bring a birth certificate to show proof of age for your daughter. I've always found Walt Disney World Resort to work on an honor system when it comes to the ages of little ones. I vacationed with all four of my children at least twice before their third birthday and was never asked to show proof of age.

    Because your 2-year-old daughter does not need a theme park ticket, you will not be able to book FastPass+ selections for her. Rest assured, she will be allowed to enter the FastPass+ entrance with you to experience any shows or attractions in which you will be using FastPass+ service as long as she meets the minimum height requirement for that particular attraction. You will be amazed at just how many attractions your little one will be able to experience at the theme parks.

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Victoria. Please stop by again with any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical and merry trip for your family!
