    Does a 15 month old need a magic band to ride at all the parks?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marilyn!

    A MagicBand is a magical device indeed!  This colorful wristband may be small, but it can do so much.  MagicBands can be used to access your theme park admission and FastPass+ reservations, unlock the door to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, redeem Disney Dining Plan entitlements, and charge purchases to your Disney Resort Hotel room account.

    Since children under age 3 do not need theme park admission and therefore do not need FastPass+ reservations, they will also not need a MagicBand.  (I assume your 15 month old will not be unlocking your room door or making purchases!)  Your child will simply accompany you and the rest of your party on the attractions you will be visiting, given they meet the height requirement.  For your convenience, here is a list of attractions suitable for "Any Height", meaning infants and toddlers are welcome to ride.

    In fact, adults and children over age 3 actually don't need MagicBands either - they can use their ticket cards for admission to the theme parks and FastPass+ queues.  However, wearing a MagicBand on your wrist is much more convenient than digging in your pocket or purse for a card.

    I hope that answers your question!  If you have any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, please stop by the Moms Panel again anytime.  We are always happy to help.  Enjoy your visit!
