    When I booked the resort for my vacation I was asked how many adults would be traveling. I chose 2 but there was no option to add my child who will be a few days shy of 3 years old at the time of our vacation. Can he have a magic band sent as well?

    Hi, Stephanie!

    All guests, regardless of their ages, must be on your resort reservation. But Hakuna Matata, no worries, this can be fixed in a jiffy! Simply call a friendly Cast Member at (407)W-DISNEY and your child can be added onto your reservation. Although no park ticket will be needed since he is under the age of 3 upon arrival, a MagicBand will still be able to be personalized and sent for your little Mouseketeer.

    Your child will be added to your My Disney Experience account, so when you return to Walt Disney World after his third birthday, he will already be entered into the system for super quick booking of reservations.

    Make sure to celebrate while in Walt Disney World, as it is not everyday our little ones turn 3! Happy Birthday!
