    We will be visiting Disneyland next month. My Nephew is 2 1/2 but looks big for his age. Does Disneyland ask for proof if a child is under 3 to not have to purchase a ticket? If so, does it have to be an official birth certificate?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Stephanie.

    Children under 3 years of age do not require an admission ticket. It’s not necessary to bring proof of age, as Disney goes by honor system. If you do decide to bring documentation, I’d suggest just a copy of his birth certificate. Again, it’s not required to show proof that your nephew is under 3 years of age. 

    I hope this information helps. I wish you and your family an unforgettable trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, Stephanie. Please visit us on the Panel again if you have further questions.

    Have a magical day,

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
