    Hello, Have our first trip planned in June 2018. When it comes to the magic bands and fast pass. Does everyone need to scan it, including small children. Worried my 4 year old will not want to wear his all the time.

    Hello Jeffery!
    I am so excited that you are planning your first Walt Disney World vacation in June of 2018! Yes, every person in your traveling party will have to use their individual MagicBand and scan it to enter the parks and to redeem FastPass+ selections at the attractions. The MagicBands do adjust to a smaller size for children or those Guests with smaller wrist size (a smaller tear-out section is on every MagicBand). If your 4 year old son does not prefer to wear his MagicBand, then there is a great new option that is available to purchase as an add-on option for the new MagicBand 2 design that came out at the beginning of 2017. These new MagicBands 2 have a removable center puck which can be placed into a MagicKeepers. There are a MagicKeeper Carabiner and a MagicKeeper Lanyard Medal options (I have both of these and I love them). MagicKeepers can be put on a lanyard or clipped to a bag or clothing so this would alleviate the need for you son to wear a MagicBand. MagicKeepers are available for purchase at ShopDisney online before your vacation or at the stores in the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs during your Walt Disney World vacation. I hope that your first Walt Disney World is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
