    I'm heading to WDW in March. I'm taking my then 10-month-old. She won't need a ticket or be on the dining plan, is there any reason she would need to have a MagicBand?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Lauren ~

    March will be hEAR before you know it and I'm super excited to see that you're planning ahead! Some Mouseketeers under the age of 3 want to wear a MagicBand to be like older siblings but a 10-month old won't know the difference or need one.

    Here are some things I've found helpful when traveling to Disney with little ones:
    * Your daughter can ride any of the attractions where there is no height requirement. One of the easiest ways I've found a list is by visiting the Disney World Attractions page on the Walt Disney World Resort website. You can filter by thrill level, interests, age interests, and height. By selecting "Any Height", it will show you the attractions that any Guest can enjoy, including infants.
    * Make your FastPass+ selections ahead of time to cut down waiting in line.
    * Don't over plan every minute of your day. It will wear you all out.
    * Take advantage of the Baby Care Centers located in all four of the theme parks.
    * For those attractions with height requirements, you can use Rider Switch option.
    * Be sure to give your daughter breaks from her stroller.
    * Try (it may be hard) to stick to nap times.
    * Put your name and a bright ribbon on the handle of your stroller so that you can find it easily in the stroller parking areas.
    * Take advantage of Disney's PhotoPass Photographers so that you can all get in the picture.
    * If you see that your daughter has had enough for the day, pack it up and head back to your resort. You may not get to do everything on your trip, but you will enjoy everything you do.
