    Should I get individual magic bands for a 3yr old and 4yr old and myself. Should I just purchase 1 for the 3 of us?

    Hello Valerie, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am excited to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season. I am also glad to see that we share a love of MagicBands. You didn’t state if you will be staying at a select Disney Resort Hotel or an off-site hotel. If you are staying on property, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for each person listed on your reservation.

    You will only be able to access information for one person if you only purchase one MagicBand. Each MagicBand or admission card is linked to only one person. If you are planning to use a MagicBand to redeem FastPass+ selections and access the park with them instead of an admission card, I would suggest you purchase one for each member of your group. You can create and manage the My Disney Experience accounts you will need to link your valid admission tickets. You can make your FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your arrival in My Disney Experience for your favorite rides and attractions.

    You can purchase MagicBands, in advance, online or in the Shop Disney Parks App. You can choose from dozens of themes and designs that reflect your personality, someone’s favorite Disney Character, movie, attraction or special event. These MagicBands will need to manually be linked to your My Disney Experience accounts before you can use them.

    See ya real soon,
