Anyone been to Centre Parcs recently - did they check the ages of the children?

Just as above, anyone know if they check the ages of the children. I was hoping to book in a just over two year old as still being under two, as she still needs a cot and would rather not pay for an extra bedroom we don't need.

I've been to centre parcs recently (although I didn't make the booking) and when we arrived I think I was asked if they were the ages they were (so I guess my sister had said) but I didn't have to prove it.

I went to Center Parcs a couple of weeks ago. You are asked for everyone's date of birth when you check in.

I didn't have an extra room for my ds when he was 2.5 and used their travel cot, also never had DOB checked for room just for when booking in for activities I last went at christmas though so may have changed, worth booking by phone to check?

I went in May and they didn't bother to check then.

They are unlikely to insist on birth certificates, so you just lie on the booking and lie again if they ask when you check in.

No, they don't really check ime -they say "how many in the car". Although we normally go with friends so there are 3 or 4 cars anyway.

My younger son has a special Center Parcs DOB as we have been many times. In case case he is down as being 2 months older than his actual age - this was so we could get him in the same activity events/childcare groups as his elder brother (they are actually 13 months apart ). I have never been asked to evidence his age and he is 12 now.

we technically don't need to do it anymore, but we just keep the same date now for historical reasons. The only time it actually effects is when we go in the summer holidays - he is usually only 5 weeks too young but it's easier to keep the same day and just change the month. So, just be consistent and it'll be fine.
