    Will all bands fit children...age 5

    Hi, Shelby!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    Any trip to Walt Disney World Resort is magical, but there's just something about seeing things through the eyes of your little one that makes it even more special.  I'm sure your young Mouseketeer is getting so excited to visit Mickey!  One thing that my kids always like to do as we get ready for an upcoming Walt Disney World trip is to choose a new MagicBand.  They love selecting a MagicBand that reflects their own individual personality, and being able to use those MagicBands to unlock our Disney Resorts Collection Hotel room door is an added bonus.

    MagicBands are adjustable and designed to fit the majority of Guests, from the young to the young-at-heart.  MagicBands have a perforated piece that can be removed to make the band small enough for young children or adults with smaller wrists.  Just be sure that the band will fit without that extended piece because once it is removed, it cannot be reattached.  On older versions of the MagicBand, this portion of the band that could be removed was gray.  The new MagicBand+ comes with the design printed on the entire length of the band, but it still has that perforated section that can be removed to make the band smaller.  

    My daughter has always been very petite.  When she was your kiddo's age, we had to remove the perforated portion on her MagicBand to make it small enough.  However, once we made this adjustment, her MagicBand fit very well.  Although my kids are now teenagers and no longer need to size their bands down, they still love selecting new MagicBands.  On our last visit to Walt Disney World, they really got a kick out of seeing how the MagicBand+ comes alive during the various nighttime spectaculars.  I hope your little one enjoys those magical touches as much as my kids do.

    Shelby, if you have any additional questions as you get ready for your vacation, please don't hesitate to ask.  Have a magical day!
