    Hello - I am traveling to WDW Nov 14-21 and am very excited! My son who is 2 will be 3 on Dec 25th is large for his size and a few people jokingly told me they may charge me - Do I need to carry a birth certificate with me to the parks?

    Hi Lauren!
    My kids are pretty tall so sometimes they get the bigger kid treatment! You don't need to bring a birth certificate to prove your son's age. We have traveled with our children while they were between the ages of 1 and 3 many times, and we've never been asked to prove their age. A cast member may ask you your child's age and will trust your answer is an honest one. So don't worry about it. If you still feel like it's a good idea to bring one anyway, I would suggest you bring a copy, instead of an original birth certificate.
    Have a magical vacation!
