    Wanting to book a hotel as an 18 year old from the UK, is this allowed or would I be sent away and not allowed to check in?

    Hi Maddi, welcome to planDisney! Is there any better place to be than Walt Disney World as a young adult?

    You can book through the Walt Disney World Travel Company, and as long as you, the Lead Name, are 18 years old at the time of booking and possess the legal capacity and authority to enter into a legally binding contract and accept Booking Conditions. So it sounds like you're good to go! 

    Now, the tricky part is deciding which Disney Resort hotel is best for you! All offer fantastic benefits such as Early Entry. One of the best budget-friendlier options is Disney's Pop Century Resort, particularly for its Skyliner access! Great for both Hollywood Studios and EPCOT and perfect for later times in Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. 

    The My Disney Experience App is invaluable during your Walt Disney World adventure. It provides up-to-date ride wait times, Mobile Food and Beverage orders, virtual queues, and more. You can also access Online Check-In through this app. 

    Please know that most tourists seeking to enter the United States for tourism for less than 90 days are eligible to travel without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program (VWP). To determine your eligibility, please apply via the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA) website at least 72 hours before departure. You must hold the correct travel documents, valid for your journey.

    Maddi, I hope this information helps, and I would love to help with anything else to ensure you have the most magical time on your Walt Disney World adventure, Louise.
