    Can I adjust the sizing on ANY of the magic bands to fit a 3-year-old? I saw that the only ones labeled for "Kids" were all patterned and more expensive and we were looking for the solid-colored ones for our whole family

    Hiya, Alyson!

    Oh boy! I am so excited to help a fellow Bay State resident with your excellent question about MagicBand sizing.  It sounds like you enjoy all of the magical features of the MagicBand as much as I do.  With its ability to tap Guests into the theme parks, open our Disney Resort Collections Hotel doors, and even pay for those delicious Mickey Ice Cream Bars, it's like having our very own magic wand!

    When you receive your MagicBand, you may notice it comes with grey stuff on the outside of the band.  To be sure, I called Guests Services to confirm that each MagicBand comes with this outer part. You can peel this part off, which will make the MagicBand smaller, and then you can adjust the band to fit your child's wrist.  It is hard to say for certain that this smaller size will fit your little Mouseketeer's wrist, but it worked for ours when they were toddlers.  

    You also have the option to purchase the MagicBand+.  This little genie on your wrist has all of the same features as the MagicBand but with a few extra wishes.  It is rechargeable and it is interactive inside the theme parks. For example, it lights up during some of the Nighttime Spectaculars and can make magic happen in the parks. One of my favorites is the Batuu Bounty Hunters Game in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Your MagicBand+ can be the force that's with you as you hunt for bounties across the land.  If the Fab 50 Golden Character Collection is still present during your trip, those are also interactive with the MagicBand+. 

    But whether you have the MagicBand or MagicBand+ Alyson, with a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, magic will happen for you during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  If you have any additional Disney vacation planning questions, come back and see me here at planDisney, because you've got a friend in me!  

    Magically yours,
