    Hello, I have a few questions.1. I would like to know what is best to do with a seven month old at Disney World? 2.Can our old magic bands be reused? 3.Is there a place where I can find pictures or exact specifications of the pool floats that are allowed?

    Hey Howdy Hey Christa and welcome to planDisney!

    I love how you are getting your little one started off right by visiting Walt Disney World Resort early! There is so much to do around Walt Disney World with little ones and great ways to navigate the parks, so let's jump in and discuss. 

    The vision Walt Disney had when he created Walt Disney World and Disneyland were places where families could spend quality time together. This is so true when it comes to many of the shows and attractions throughout the parks. I would say Magic Kingdom would have the most options for you and your little one with regards to attractions and shows. There are many attractions such as "it's a small world", Jungle Cruise and Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room all in Magic Kingdom to experience with your little one. There are so many other attractions and shows in all of the parks for you to share as a family, just make sure to check on your My Disney Experience app for any height requirements. Of course, I would always recommend spending some downtime in the parks, like in the Rose Gardens in front of Cinderella Castle, for a place your little one can crawl and move around while you enjoy a snack or a coffee with the views and sounds of Magic Kingdom as your ambiance! 

    In all four parks, you will also find Baby Care Centers. At these locations, you will have some quieter time and a place to sit to feed your little one, facilities to change them as well as a place to purchase things you may have forgotten or run out of such as wipes and diapers.

    Tricky question with your MagicBand because it depends on the age. I have had Cast Members tell me they usually last about two years before the battery runs out. But if you have a MagicBand less than two years old, feel free to use it! If you go on your My Disney Experience account, look under "My MagicBands and Cards". Scroll down and you should see everyone in your travel party as well as the MagicBands that are linked to their accounts. It might be a good idea, if you do reuse previous MagicBands, to stop by the front desk on your date of arrival and make sure that they are all set and ready to go. 

    Now with regards to pool floats. My good friend and fellow planDisney panelist Alyssa was able to provide an answer that verified my knowledge on pool floats. Generally, if you can buy it in a Disney gift shop at your hotel, you can use it in the pool. If you bring it from home or have it delivered, these floats are not allowed in the pools, unfortunately. Hopefully, this does not change much with your plans for spending some time in the pool at your resort. Many pools do have zero entry entrances where you might be able to spend some time with your little one in very shallow water and also have access to splash pads for little ones as well so they can stay cool in a much safer environment. 

    I feel like we covered a lot here in preparation for your upcoming trip! I hope this was helpful and best wishes on your preparation. I hope for a Magical time for you on your trip. Let us know if we can be of any further help!

    Have a Magical Day,
