    Magic bands for under 2's, do they need them?

    Hi Debbie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are a wonderful way to add convenience to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they give you access to your theme park tickets, Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account right from your wrist! Since Guests under 3 years old do not require theme park tickets and do not need FastPass+ reservations, they are not required to have a MagicBand (or an admission card). However, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, all Guests on your reservation will receive a complimentary MagicBand, even little Mouseketeers. While they are not required to wear or use their MagicBand, my 2 year old loves that gets his own band to wear, just like everyone else in the family! Often he will chose to wear it for only a few hours, particularly when we are entering the park. His MagicBand is in our backpack for parts of the day when he doesn't care to wear it. If you are purchasing MagicBands for your family, you can choose to purchase one for your little one or you can skip it and get extra Dole Whips and souvenEARs instead!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
