    does a child's magic band serve as identification incase the child gets lost...does the child's magic band if scanned have parent contact information?

    Hi Cynthia!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is a very safe place, but they realize that things like this do happen, so they have extensive safety measures in place to make sure that you and your little princes and princesses are as safe and comfortable as possible, even if you get separated!

    Unfortunately, although MagicBands are incredible pieces of technology, they do not directly contain personal information like parental contact information.  That being said, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, your room reservation information on the MagicBand will be available to Guest Relations who would be able to call the contact number associated with the reservation.

    If your child does become separated from you at any point, they can speak with any Cast Member who will wait a few minutes to see if you return to the location.  If after a few minutes you have not been reunited, the Cast Member will likely contact security who will then take your little one to a safe location until you are reunited.  If your child is unable to give them contact information, and you have still not been reunited, security may contact Guest Relations to see if there is contact information for you on file with the resort.  Remember, as soon as you notice that your child is lost, you should also speak with any Cast Member.

    Security recommends placing your phone number on a small piece of paper in a sock, on a bracelet, or written in permanent marker on an arm in case of separation to help reunite you with your little one as soon as possible.  You can also denote a specific location to meet in the event that you do become separated.  Although this event is unlikely, it is always best to be prepared!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
