    We are visiting WDW the week before my son turns 3, so of course we did not purchase him a ticket. However, I'm a little concerned because he is the size of a 4 year old. Do I need to bring along his birth certificate as a precaution?

    Hi, Katy!

    Aw, bringing your little prince to Walt Disney World is going to be so much fun. When my little guy was 3, all he wanted to do was ride the monorail around all day never know where you will find the magic in Disney!

    Mickey is a pretty trusting Mouse, so no worries about your son or if he looks older than he is. Since he is under 3 years old, he will not require a park ticket (HUGE savings - why can't they stay little?!)  The cast members will not require you to show any proof of age. 

    Make sure to bring along an autograph book, extra clothes, snacks, and plan for afternoon breaks.  All this will add to the fun and magic of your vacation.

    Wishing you a magical vacation in Walt Disney World! And make sure to celebrate your son's birthday.  It's not everyday your prince turns 3 years old!  Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
