    I plan to purchase MagicBand+ for both adults in our party, but am unsure whether or not purchasing the regular MagicBands for my young children would be of any benefit. Does scanning in for Genie+ on an adult band cover all in my party?

    Hi Hayley!

    MagicBands are your key to unlocking your vacation magic! You'll be able to access your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account with just a touch of your MagicBand. Also, if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then you'll be able to access your hotel room and make purchases throughout the resort to be charged to your room folio.

    Each Guest's MagicBand will give them access to their own personal entitlements linked through My Disney Experience. The ticket media for each Guest needs to be touched separately at theme park entrances and Lightning Lane entrances to access each Guest's entitlements. So unfortunately, there's no way to access your children's entitlements with your MagicBand. This means you will either need to purchase MagicBands or MagicBand+ for your little ones, or use Disney MobileMagic or admission cards for your little ones to access their theme park tickets and Lightning Lane reservations. If you would like to use admission cards for anyone in your group, you can always pick them up from Guest Relations or you can set up Disney MobileMagic on your phone for your ticket, as well as tickets for your little ones. Otherwise, in my experience, my kids love wearing MagicBands and they make great souvenEARs that they use during our entire vacation. So I think your little ones would love MagicBands during your trip!

    I'm so excited that MagicBand+ have debuted at Walt Disney World Resort and I'm excited that you'll be trying them out on your upcoming vacation!  They will allow you to interact in new and exciting ways with the theme park and we are definitely getting them for our next family vacation. My boys can't wait to become Bounty Hunters as they explore Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
