I think in your case you need to show birth cert only to prove to the airline that he's under 2.
Last week when we traveled, TSA only asked the kids a couple questions like their full name and age. We did not have to show their ID's. They are 11 and 5.

I took a BC for my 5 year old DGD in April since our last names are different and they never even asked to see one! Don't think you'll need one unless there is a question of age.

We are here! We had a blast last night at MVMCP! It was an awesome time.
We got to the partk right at 4 and were able to watch the castle show, ride tomorrowland Race track, mad tea party, dumbo and see Minnie and Daisy before heading down Main Street to get in line for Santa before the party started. We ate dinner in line. Saw Santa, Saw the Princesses/Prince. We got cocoa and cookies. Then we rode Buzz 3 times, the People Mover 1x. We watched the Tomorrowland Christmas Show, Rode Buzz again. Then we watched the Fireworks, the Castle Christmas show and the 2nd parade. After the parade we got a snack, rode Peter Pan and the carousel and then left the park.

It was a lot of fun. We saw all the shows, saw the characters we wanted to see and rode some rides. What more could you ask for?

We will be going thru security with a liquid antibiotic now. I had to take DD to the doctor yesterday. She has double ear infection. Just how we want to get started...at least we found out before we left. This gives her time to get the meds in and working. The plane ride would have been horrible for her. We leave Wednesday after we pick her up from school to head to the airport for the night. We can't wait.

Today she had the pinewood derby and bake-off. Her car got stuck on the track the first time down. It made it down the next time. She did get 2nd place for the bake-off with the orange-cranberry cookies with orange glaze she made.

First day was a blast!

We checked in at 10am. Because we used online check in the process took mere minutes. The room wasn't ready but they gave us the keys and told me they would text me when it was ready.

We walked all of AoA. It's a beautiful resort. It doesn't scream "value" to me at all. Great for the kids.

We got into the room, went swimming, came back and showered and then went to DTD. Left there and went to a friend's restaurant in Orlando.

Back at the room now enjoying hot chocolate and Irish cream. Looking forward to a full night rest and Epcot in the morning!

Sounds like you did a lot of things and had a blast. So exciting! I have been trying to figure out the timing to do the fireworks, castle show and 2nd parade without having to find different spots for all three.

Sorry about the ear infection. I hope she feels better soon.
Congrats on winning 2nd place in the bake-off!

we did not stake out any of them in advance. We found a spot for the fireworks in front of the Plaza about 5 minutes before the fireworks started. Then we moved down to the Castle Stage for the show. We were about 6 or 7 rows back on the right hand side. THe girls were able to stay in their stroller and were able to see everything perfectly.

Then we walked to Frontierland and watched the parade between Country Bear Jamboree and The Shooting Gallery. We walked up 2 minutes before the parade stopped. There was one couple in front of us sitting on the curb. Again the girls sat in their stroller and my husband and I stood behind them. We had a perfect unobstructed view of the parade from there.

Today was a beautiful non-crowded day at EPCOT. We had a great time exploring the World Showcase.

Final countdown...

Everyone is packed, except last minute items
Boys still have no clue

And as Murphy's law would deem necessary one came one Pukey from school fri. We are officially 12 hours vomit free and if my older son plays his cards right I will let him out of his bubble before we board j/k
Of course because of that I forgot to get other sons homework to work on during the drive.... Uuugh


Total anxiety about this trip. Feel like I am on pins and needles.
The weather alone is driving me nuts. Being from the Midwest 73 can be tanks and shorts or long pants depending... So if anyone needs extra clothes next week I'm sure I can help!

What if they don't have fun... What if it isn't as magical as last time....
