    my son will be 2 at our time of travel but he is often mistaken for being much older as he is a little bigger than most toddlers. do i have to bring any documentation or proof of age to carry with us through the parks since he is under 3?

    Hi Mandy:

    Thanks for sending your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Disney will typically use the honour system when the age of a guest is in question.  My daughter was a very tall and well spoken two year old, and I worried about the same thing.  A few Cast Members did ask her age at dining locations, but it was only because of the Disney Dining Plan.  We never had to show any documentation anywhere.  I did always have her passport handy, just in case.  If you are worried, I would suggest making a copy of your sons birth certificate or passport to carry with you, for peace of mind.  

    Have a magical day!
