    I was customizing our magic bands and noticed that they had my daughter listed for a band, but since she's only 2 I didn't think she would get one. Does a child without park tickets or dining need a band? and are they smaller?

    Hi Carrie!

    Thanks for this great question! Last time my family visited Walt Disney World, our grandkids under 3 received MagicBands. I asked a Cast Member at the front desk of our Disney Resort Hotel about it when we checked in and was told that even though children under 3 do not need Theme Park Admission, FastPasses or Advanced Dining Reservations--some of the things you would typically connect to your MagicBands in your My Disney Experience Account--their MagicBands actually have the account holder's name and contact information on them. This is done for identification purposes--just in case, heaven forbid, your little one was ever accidentally separated from you. I think it is a great idea and as a parent and grandparent, I really appreciate knowing our little ones have our contact information with them at all times. I know you will too! By the way, all MagicBands are the same size but they can be adjusted to fit any wrist size.

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and hope you will come back if there is anything else we can do to help you. I'm so excited for your upcoming visit. Here's to many magical Disney memories ahead!

    Have a wonderful day.
