    Good evening, My family and I are going to purchase annual tickets for Disney World. I have a child that Is younger than 3 (the required age for purchasing a pass), do I need to purchase a magic band for him? How do I go about getting him an annual pass?

    Hi Holly,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. My family has been Annual Passholders at Walt Disney World for many years. We love the ability to head to a Walt Disney World theme park throughout the year without thinking about purchasing new tickets, and the benefits to Annual Passholders, including discounts at select merchandise and dining locations, are wonderful.

    When you go to purchase your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, be sure to log in to see any discounts that you may qualify for, including Florida resident and Disney Vacation Club member discounts.

    Since your child is under 3 years old, I have great news for you! You will not need to purchase an Annual Pass for that child. Children under 3 years old do not need tickets to enter a Walt Disney World theme park. Similarly, they do not need MagicBands, so you do not need to purchase one for him.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Holly! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
