    Our family (2 adults/2 2yo) will be staying at a Disney resort and my parents will also be joining and staying in their RV at Camp Wilderness. Will we all get magic bands? Do we need to reserve on 1 acct? And what about meal plans for kids? Thank you!!!

    Hi Michelle,

    It sounds like you have a very fun trip planned! Everyone staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, including Fort Wilderness, currently receives MagicBands. The important step for your family that will be extremely helpful is adding each other as Family & Friends on My Disney Experience. Once you have added each other, it will be easy to make dining reservations and FastPass+ selections together. Just as a reminder, you can make dining reservations 180 days in advance of your check in date and FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance. 

    You also asked if you would need a dining plan for your kids. Infants and children under the age of three do not require a dining plan. It is expected your children will share your meal. If you find your children need more to eat, or you need them to eat less of your meal, you can order something off of the menu for them and pay cash or charge it. 

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. As you continue to plan your vacation, please be sure to let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical day,
    Amy H.
