    We just booked our trip yesterday! My daughter is only 2 and doesn't require a ticket for admission. How can I get her Magic Band to arrive when ours does?

    Hey there, Jacqueline!

    Guests that do not require park admission, such as your sweet Princess, do not require admission into any of the theme parks. Because she does not need a ticket to enter the parks, she will not receive a MagicBand along with the rest of your party. 

    When my daughter was 2, we decided to buy her a MagicBand from Disney Store online or app or the Shop Disney App; then we held it until the remainder of the MagicBands arrived in the mail. So, we were able to give her the same magic mail that everyone else was getting. 

    Once we arrived at the parks, we told her that she had a special MagicBand that she could tap on the Mickey, but it would not turn green like everyone elses. This worked and she had a ball pretending to use her MagicBand! 

    Since your Princess does not require a ticket, her MagicBand will technically be inactive until she turns 3 and will require park admission. This also means that she will not need to be added to your FastPass+ selections. You can just take her in the FastPass+ line with you, with no problems!

    I hope this helps to make your little Princess' Disney vacation a little more magical!
