    Im going to WDW in October; I will be 18 but we were putting on the age for me as 17 and it took off about 100 so dollars.

    My mom is on a budget and we need to save as much money as possible.


    Can we actually do this w/o getting in trouble by Disney?!


    Thanks!!

    Technically you are stealing, and heaven forbid that something would happen to you that would result in your true age being revealed.

    I'm not sure if Disney will check? I know when we check in I have to show I.D. but that is because the reservation is in my name. I've never had Disney ask about ages of other people in my party.

    I'm surprised to learn that there is such a difference between 17 and 18 years of age in the cost!

    Could you maybe try to conserve funds by some other means?

    Yep, Disney will allow two adults over the age if 18 in the room. Any more and there is a charge per night, per adult. The charge is computed by the type of resort as well.

    So the best thing to do is keep the age 18; just in case?

    I would say yes. If they do check and it comes out that you are 18, then your Mom is going to have to come up with a pretty big amount of cash right then and there to payoff the reservation. That would be an even worse situation then having to cut out a few meals or something to save on funds.

    The only time we were there with a non paying minor was when Tatiana was 18 months, it was obvious she was under 3, so they never checked.

    Having said that, I agree with what has been said before.

    yes i definately agree with all that has been said.
    if it was to come out and you had decieved them maybe they could refuse you staying and then you could lose all your money.
    you could easily save $100 some other way, like refill water bottles around the parks. decide not to buy gifts for family and friends, etc xx
