    I know that children under three get in free, and have read that they won't get magic bands, but when we came 2 years ago, one of my kids were two and he got a magic band. I'm confused.

    Hey there, Heather!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're so glad you stopped by with your question. It sounds like you're planning an upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. How exciting!

    You are absolutely correct that children under the age of 3 do not require theme park admission. Since Guests under the age of 3 do not require a theme park ticket, they don't technically need a MagicBand for park entry or to check-in for FastPass+ experiences. I just called Disney Guest Services to verify my information for you, and the friendly Cast Member confirmed that Guests under the age of 3 are still eligible to receive a MagicBand if they are listed on the Disney Resort hotel reservation. One of my favorite benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel is being able to receive complimentary MagicBands for my entire family. 

    As a mom of four children myself, I've always found there's so much for little ones to do at Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to check out the 19 magical new experiences at Walt Disney World Resort in 2019. You've picked a great year to visit!

    I hope this information is helpful in alleviating any confusion, Heather. Let us know if you have any new questions. We would love to assist you further in planning a magical trip for your family!
