    Hi there, I recently won a trip to Disney World and my stay at Saratoga Springs Resort is already booked and paid for. I am going with my boyfriend who is 18, and I am 19. I heard that the person checking in must be 21, is this true?

    Hey there, Kaelin! Oh my goodness, are you so excited to have won a trip to Walt Disney World? Squeeeee! I'd be jumping all over the house.

    Anyone over the age of 18 can check into a Walt Disney World resort hotel, so you're fine being 18 and 19. You may want to put a debit or credit card on file with the front desk when you check in. This way, you can just use your MagicBands to pay for essentials.

    Don't forget - if you want to make some nice dining reservations for romantic or fun meals (you're never too old for a character meal!), your booking window begins 180 days prior to your arrival at the resort. You can make reservations for up to 10 days, and you will want to do that for the more popular meals, like character meals, 'Ohana, or even Be Our Guest.

    Guests of Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort and Spa are also eligible to make FastPass+ attraction selections 60 days in advance. You'll want to do that for sure!

    Have an absolutely magical visit to Walt Disney World!
