    going to Disney world soon my children will be 9 and 7 we will be having the deluxe dining plane and have magic bands. Me and the wife will be wearing ours all the time is it ok if we carry the children’s or must they wear them many thanks

    Hello Dan!

    I would like to thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel to ask a wonderful vacation planning question.  It sounds like you have an amazing trip planned for your family.  Be sure to book some Character Dining reservations with your Disney Deluxe Dining Plan,  it's a great way to meet beloved characters without having to stand in line.   A bonus is you get a great meal out of the deal as well.

    Your children will need to tap their MagicBands and use a fingerprint scanner when they enter the Theme Park, after that you can hang on to their MagicBands for them if you would like.   You would need to tap them to enter queues for your Disney FastPass+ selections, but you can do this while you wear them, or by pulling them out of a bag.   My youngest son is 7 and he always seems to pull his MagicBand off or just plays with it, so I do wear his on my other wrist.  You will not have a problem doing this with your kids as well. 

    I hope this has helped.  Please stop by again anytime you have another question about traveling to The Most Magical Place on Earth.  All the Disney Parks Moms Panelists love to lend a helping hand every chance we get.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
