    My sister will be in another room, but will be helping me with my baby (taking back for naps and such). Do the resorts still give actual keys so I can give her one or can she gain access through her magic band.

    Hi, there!

     Jennifer, I'm so excited to hear about your upcoming vacation. My family will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this summer too, and we'll be celebrating our baby's first visit! I just. can't. wait.

     It's so great that you'll have an extra set of hands to help with your baby. What an awesome sister you have! A MagicBand can only hold a single room key, so she won't be able to use her MagicBand to enter your room in addition to hers. It is possible, however, to get her an access card that would open your room. As the primary occupant of your room, you'll need to visit the Front Desk of your Resort hotel to request the access card for your sister. If the Front Desk is unable to provide you with the access card, you could temporarily exchange MagicBands with your sister, or make sure her room is equipped with whatever gear you need for your baby to peacefully rest. 

     It is going to be an Incredible Summer at the Walt Disney World Resort! I recently shared some tips for keeping little ones cool and comfortable in the Orlando heat. I hope you find them helpful!

     Have you made your FastPass+ selections yet? Be sure to use FastPass+ and Disney's Rider Switch Service in conjunction with one another to make the most of your valuable time in the theme parks. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
