    I will be traveling with a 2 year old. She will be almost 3. Do we need to carry a birth certificate just in case. Or do they question that at all?

    Hi, Glen!  No one at Walt Disney World will ask you to produce a birth certificate for your daughter.  If anyone does question how old she is - which I have never had anyone do - they will take your word for it that she is two without question.

    My middle daughter has always been quite tall, and I worried nearly every time we went to a theme park that I'd have to bring a birth certificate, baptismal records, and a notarized letter from the obstetrician that delivered her as proof of her age!  Fortunately, no one ever questioned the she wasn't under three. 

    Have a great trip!
