    My Two and a half year old is big for his age, do I need to bring proof of his age?

    Hi Brittany,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question! 

    As you undoubtedly know, Guests of the Walt Disney World Resort under the age of 3 are Mickey's Special Guests and don't require a ticket in order to enter a Theme Park or Water Park. My "little" guy is 2 1/2 years old and big for his age too, so I understand your concern. To give you an idea - he's tall enough to ride almost all of the attractions in the Theme Parks, even those with a height requirement, but he's not "emotionally" ready to ride very many of them... 

    I always walk around with a photocopy of the front page of his passport, just in case people ask to see it. Although I routinely get asked for his age, no one has asked me to provide them with proof as of yet. I would recommend that you do the same: bring a photocopy of his birth certificate with you, so that you can have one less thing to worry about during your visit!

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! Please don't hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
