    We will be planning a visit for my son's 3rd birthday in November. We will be arriving before he turns 3, and I understand his visit is complementary. My question is whether or not he will receive a magic band along with the rest of us in the party?

    Howdy Crystal!

    I can't think of a more magical place to spend a birthday than at Walt Disney World. I hope your little prince has an unforgettable time. Be sure to pick up a complimentary "Happy Birthday" button from any Guest Service location on Disney property, it's sure to bring your little man lots of smiles, and well wishes on his big day.

    You are absolutely correct since your little one will only be 2 years-old at the beginning of the vacation, he will be considered a Guest of Mickey Mouse for his entire stay. You will not need to purchase theme park admission for your son and he can share off of adult meals at Disney Dining locations. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel everyone listed on your reservation will receive a complimentary MagicBand no matter what age they are at the time of travel. My nephew visited when he was just 4 months-old and my sister was able to customize a MagicBand for him. They will not need to  wear or use the MagicBand but it does make a great souvenir.  My youngest  son loved wearing his MagicBand as it made him feel just like his big sister and brother.    

    Thanks for stopping by Crystal, please let us know when we can help you out again in the future.   We love to help Guests have the most magical time possible while on a Walt Disney World vacation.
