    My daughter is under 3 so we did not have to purchase theme park tickets. Does she still need a magic band? And, do we have to FastPass for her?

    Hi, Lisa!

    Guests under the age of 3, do not require park admission or a Magic Band. Since your little Princess does not have a theme park ticket, you will not be able to add any FastPass+ attractions or events for her. FastPass+ is a complimentary service offered to guests who have park tickets. 

    When our Princess was 2, we just took her along with us into the FastPass+ line. Because admission was not required for her, there was no problem getting her into the park or onto any rides that we thought were appropriate for her. 

    Magic Bands are only necessary for any guests who has a theme park ticket, so when she turns 3, she will have the magic of wearing one of those special bracelets!

    Happy planning and thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
