    Jill from ME Asked

    My child is under 3. We are all getting magic bands and want him to have one also. Is there a way to link it to him if he does not have a ticket? We are not staying at any disney resort.

    Hello Jill!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    Little ones just love to feel included by imitating older children or adults! It really makes them feel important and happy! 

    You can buy a MagicBand for your son, and if you stay at a Disney Resort hotel in the future he will also get one just as all other Guests in the reservation. You can even log in to your My Disney Experience account and add him to your Family and Friends list to be able to link him to all your activities. 

    You won’t be able to make FastPass+ selections for him, but don’t worry because your Mouseketeer will be able to join you for attractions he is already big enough for. He will have so much fun tapping his MagicBand to the Mickey at the entrance of attractions. In addition, don’t forget to count him as a Guest for all your dining reservations.

    Jill, traveling with little ones is surely special, and did you know that there are Baby Care Centers located at all four theme parks? Go there for a diaper change, for a snack or even just to rest. Another great service available is Rider Switch, which allows Guests to take turns waiting with little ones unable to ride.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jill! I really hope this helps you while planning!

    Have a magical vacation!
