    Planning a trip with my nephew, who is under 2. Everyone else in his room has a magic band. Does he need one too?

    Hi Elizabeth!

    MagicBands are a quick and convenient way to access the magic during your Walt Disney World vacation. I love having my Resort hotel room key right on my wrist as well as my park admission and a way to pay for any purchases.  They are also super cute too!  I lost count of how many I have at this point.

    Since your nephew is under 2 and doesn't require a park ticket, he doesn't need a MagicBand either.  MagicBands are no longer complimentary for Resort hotel guests, so there really is no need to purchase one for him, unless he really wants one.  

    MagicBand+ are the newest styles that can actually interact inside the Walt Disney World Theme Parks.  Feel it buzz and light up when you activate a Disney Fab 50 Character Collection golden statue or watch the lights dance during Nighttime Spectaculars at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.  

    If your nephew decides he would like a MagicBand during your vacation, they can be purchased at numerous gift shops at all theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and can be easily activated using your My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Please stop back by if you have any additional questions.

    Have a magical day!
