    I want my toddler to have a Magic Band. However, I don't want him having access to my card information. How do I link him to the room/tickets, but no card?

    Welcome to planDisney, Erin!

    I am so excited about your family's upcoming travels to the Walt Disney World Resort. Traveling with a toddler can be a truly magical adventure. And I am delighted to tell you that Magic Bands can absolutely be added to your account for a child of any age. Is there anything better than the huge smile that lights up their face as they use their very own band to enter their favorite park? 

    The process for adding a little one is simple and rest assured, they will not have access to any of your card information. If you have not already created a profile for him on My Disney Experience, you will need to visit the home page and go to the Friends and Family link. Click "Add a Guest" and then the "I'll enter their name and age" option. The prompts will take you through the rest of the super-simple steps. You can also create their profile on The My Disney Experience mobile app. Once you have created a profile, be sure that it is linked to your current reservation. You should be able to see their profile listed on your upcoming plans. 

    The next part is the best part. Choosing the perfect Magic Band. I must admit I have several in my collection because it is so hard to choose! Characters and castles, snacks, or Stitch. There is sure to be the perfect band for your son's upcoming Disney adventure. If you would like to order a Magic Band to be shipped to your home before your arrival, be sure to do so no less than 11 days before your check-in date. You can also order the band of your choice up to 6 days before your arrival and have it waiting for you at your Walt Disney Resort Hotel. You will do this under the "My Magic Bands and Cards" section on the My Disney Experience website. You cannot order Magic Bands through the mobile app. 

    Erin, your trip is coming up very soon. How exciting! If there is not enough time to place an order before you arrive you can choose to purchase a Magic Band at any of the four theme parks, throughout Disney Springs, and in all Disney Resort hotels. This is a great souvenir option and kids have a lot of fun choosing the perfect band. A Castmember will be able to link the band to your account after purchase. 

    Have the most Magical time choosing your Magic Bands together. They are just the beginning of a lifetime of memories you will create on your trip. 

    See ya real soon!
