    Hi, I am traveling to WDW May 17, 2008. We are taking our 10mo, 2 1/2 yo, and our five year old. Our two year old looks older than what she is (she is tall.) Do they require any verification of age? Or, will my word be o.k.

    No worries!

    You will not have to show any proof of age at the entrance gate for your tall 2-year old daughter. The Cast Members will simply let you and your small child through the turnstile or stroller gate.

    I don't even remember having to say "he's 2" when we took our son at that age. I think we just presented our adult admission media and were allowed in. No questions asked.

    That being said, I have heard from some parents that were upset when a Cast Member "gave them a look" when entering a park with a tall child under 3 years of age. If that had been me, I would have wanted to show with a copy of his birth certificate that I was not cheating the system. However, Cast Members will not ask for one and will not question your child's stated age.

    Enjoy your vacation!
