    We are going on our first Disneyworld trip since 1990! So I’ve never experienced a lot if the new stuff! ( We usually go to Disneyland!) Does my 2 year old need a magicband? He’s too young for a ticket or a meal plan of his own! What would he need one for?

    Hi Bailey!

    I'm so excited to hear that you are getting ready to return to Walt Disney World Resort! There is so much magic in the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs that you will be able to enjoy. Be sure to consider adding Memory Maker to your visit so you can capture all of the magical memories you make with your little one!

    MagicBands are a fantastic addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they allow you to access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Since your little one is 2 years old, he won't have tickets or FastPass+ reservations because he receives complimentary admission. So while your little one doesn't need one for your trip, if you are staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels, you will receive complimentary MagicBands for all Guests on your reservation, even little Mouseketeers. So in that case, you can order a complimentary MagicBand for your little one so he can feel like one of the "big kids" and he can wear it if he chooses. When we traveled with my boys when they were 2 years old, they loved wearing their MagicBands and they were so proud of themselves when they could open our hotel room door or use their MagicBand to add photos to our Memory Maker account all by themselves!

    Bailey, be sure to visit the Baby Care Centers during your visit because they are the perfect place to take care of your little one's needs. Also, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news and announcements about everything you will be able to enjoy during your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
