    Do children under 2 need a magic band/park ticket?

    Hi, Amy!

    Thanks for asking this great question!

    You'll be happy to hear that when purchasing Walt Disney World theme park tickets, children under the age of 3 do not need a ticket. That makes this a great time to bring your little one to WDW: the magic your preschooler will experience is free of charge!

    For additional tips for planning your trip, check out this great link that's filled with planning tips:  Walt Disney World with a preschooler. You'll find lots of information that's really helpful to parents of little ones, including information about Baby Care Centers (the reason I fell in love with Walt Disney World) and a list of attractions that are just right for you and your family.

    As you think of more questions, Amy, please come back and send them our way. Moms and Dads on the Disney Parks Moms Panel love to help families maximize the magic in their Walt Disney World vacations!
