    My family has purchased magic bands for entry to the parks. We did not purchase one for my 5yo as he will not wear it. Would we need to use the mobile app for his ticket upon entry or can I use my magic band for his ticket?

    Welcome to planDisney, Roxanne!

    I have a fellow five-year-old, and I will tell you that although he will wear a MagicBand, he has lost more than one. So if your little guy will not wear one, I absolutely think that you are making the right decision using an alternate method of theme park entry for him.  

    Roxanne, while you can use your MagicBand for your admission to the theme parks, it will not work for your son's ticket. What you can do is set up a MagicMobile pass for your son. You can easily set up a MagicMobile pass through your My Disney Experience Mobile App

    I hope that this answered your question, Roxanne. 

    Have a magical time!
