    I am bringing my almost almost three year old with me in April 2017. Is there a special band she will wear to show she is under three? Also, can she be with us for the fast pass attractions if she does not have a purchased ticket?

    Hello Tamie!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    A month before my son turned 3, I planned a trip to take advantage of Walt Disney World Resort policy for tickets and dining that an under 3-year old does not require a ticket or meal at Table Service locations.  However frugal my decision, my son was cognizant of the MagicBands that Mommy, Daddy and Big Sister were wearing and insisted that he have one to wear as well.  Fortunately, a planned stay on property at Walt Disney World Resort had us covered.

    Every stay at Walt Disney World Resort, assigns MagicBands for each member of your party that are mailed to your home. If not, they will be awaiting your arrival at the front desk of your resort hotel.  These MagicBands contain information booked during your reservation and anything that you choose to add through the My Disney Experience App, such as Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ Selections and more. You can even customize your MagicBand through the My Disney Experience App.

    If you do not stay on property while visiting Walt Disney World Resort you will not receive MagicBands.  Bring your child's identification to show at the ticket gates for admission into the parks.  Those staying off property may purchase MagicBands at stores throughout Walt Disney World Resort to contain all of their information, if they choose.

    Children under 3 are granted admission with Parents and Guardians possessing FastPass+ Selections, but must adhere to the height restrictions of the attraction.  If not, the rider switch option is available for those attractions children under 3 are not able to experience.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
