    We are 3 adults, a 1yr. old & a 2 yr. old? We are buying 3 tickets since the babies are free. Do we get 3 or 5 Magic Bands? Will we only make Fast Pass+ for the adults & the babies just join us on rides? TY.

    Hello Eileen! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    My family and I planned an impromptu extra Walt Disney World Resort vacation a month before my son turned 3-years old. We decided to really enjoy the benefits of Complimentary Theme Park admission and certain dining exceptions, such as a child under 3 eating off of a parent's plate at buffets, one last time! It was an Endlessly Magical experience that I remember fondly when I book new Walt Disney World Resort vacations.

    I can only imagine that we will do something similar when when my daughter is about to turn 10-years old.

    When you make reservations at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, MagicBands will be provided to every member of the family listed under the reservation. This was crucial when my 2-year old insisted he wear a MagicBand like big sister and scan it everywhere we went.  You should have 5 MagicBands for your party sent to the address you provided upon booking, unless the address is outside of the U.S.A. or there is not adequate time to mail it expediently. In that case, your MagicBands will be waiting for you upon arrival at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.

    You are not required to book FastPass+ selections for children under 3. Any children under 3 are allowed into the FastPass+ queue with any accompanying Guest in your party that currently has a FastPass+ for the attraction. Note that children are required to meet the height restrictions for any rides and that Guests should use discretion when determining the suitability of certain rides for their kids.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
