    We are going to Disney world in January 2017. Will my 2 year old get a magic band like the rest of us? And if not can we purchase her one even if it doesn't work, just so she will have one to wear.

    Hey, Tracey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Since your 2-year-old Princess does not require park admission, she will not receive MagicBand with your reservation.

    This is exactly what we did for our 2-year-old Princess! We purchased a MagicBand for her on the Shop Disney mobile app! You can also find MagicBand at the Disney Store online. Also, each theme park sells MagicBand, if you would like to purchase one once you arrive. 

    Your MagicBand won't be activated until you link it a My Disney Experience Account. So, on your next Disney visit, after she has turned 3 and requires park admission, you can use the MagicBand you purchased for this trip and link it to her My Disney Experience Account!

    This little bit of pixie dust is sure to make your little Princess feel so special! 

    Happy planning!
