    we are going to Disney world in may 2 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 12. When scanning the magic bands, is it just the adults bands that can scan? ie. fastpass, hotel, dining, purchases

    Hi Nicole,

    Only a few more weeks until the magic starts. Ready? I’m sure!

    MagicBands are an awesome creation. Imagine jamming your wallet, your camera, your theme park tickets, your room keys and your reservations into a strap around your wrist. I’m sure it’ll weigh a ton! But the MagicBands become all of these things. Once you link your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you can simply use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks. You can use it to redeem your FastPass+ reservations at attractions. They’ll keep track of any picture a Disney PhotoPass photographer takes. And if you stay at a resort hotel, you can use it to charge any purchases, including dinners to your room account, and they’ll open the doors to your room.

    Most times, everyone in your family will need to scan their MagicBand, for example, to enter a theme park, or to redeem a FastPass+. Sometimes, only one person would need to scan it, for example, to add a picture taken by the Disney PhotoPass photographers, to open your resort hotel room door, or to buy something. However, you can control who has access to make purchases and charge your room account. You can manage this from within My Disney Experience.

    It’s pretty easy, and I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it in no time. All you need to remember is to touch Mickey to Mickey. Ok, I’ll let you get back to packing, but if you have any last minute questions, come back.
