Walt Disney World Revises Age Requirements for Solo Children Visiting Its Parks

Starting March 23, 2013, mk-waltmickeystatue is changing its policy for children/teenagers entering the park without adults.

As of Saturday, anyone under 14 will not be able to walk through the turnstiles solo. If an unaccompanied guest looks younger than 14, a cast member at the front gates will attempt to find out the age.

If the guest isn’t 14 or older, their parent or guardian will be contacted and would need to physically come to the park and accompany the child inside.

In the past, each Walt Disney World park had its own admission policy regarding unaccompanied minors, but the company says they finally felt it was time to establish a set age for all of their parks to adhere to.
