    I have 2 days left on a 10 day non-expiring child's ticket for my son who is now 13. It's linked to his magic band but do I need to do anything before he tries to tap in at a park? Will a CM stop him from entering on a child's pass?

    Hi Thomas, 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so glad you decided to stop back by to let us help you with another Disney vacation question. It looks like you are just a few weeks from your next Walt Disney World vacation and I am sure you are finalizing all of your vacation plans. If you haven’t already done so, I highly recommend that you download the My Disney Experience mobile app to easily access all of your vacation plans, including details about your resort stay, dining reservations, theme park tickets, and FastPass+ selections. From the app you can view park hours, attraction wait times, Disney PhotoPass photos, and place mobile orders at select quick service restaurants. It is such an amazing tool that can help you make the most of your vacation!

    I am pleased to inform you that you will simply need to stop by one of the theme park ticket windows to have a Cast Member upgrade your son’s non-expiring ticket to an adult ticket, now that he is 13 years old. There will be no charge to do so and they can do the upgrade simply by accessing the ticket that you have already linked to his MagicBand. Once a Cast Member has upgraded the ticket, you can enjoy those last couple of days in the Walt Disney World theme parks. 

    I hope this information helps you to have an absolutely wonderful time in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
