    Kevin Asked

    My son will be just under 3 when we come to Disney! He is already almost 40" though!! Will there be an issue at the gate with him being so tall for his age?! Do you need to prove that he is under 3? I just want to be more than prepared.

    Hi, Kevin!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I hope you’re having a great time planning your family’s visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Based on my personal experience, you don’t worry about bringing along documentation of your son’s age. If you do happen to be asked by a Cast Member at the turnstiles how old he is, simply explain that he is about to turn 3 years old and give his date of birth. It will be as simple as that. 

    I hope this helps, Kevin, and that you enjoy a wonderfully magical Walt Disney World Resort visit with your little one. Please feel free to visit me again with more questions as your planning continues!

    Wishing you magic,
