    Does my toddler (2 years old, so they are free) need a Magic Band for Fast Pass or other reservations?

    Hey there, Christine. Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. 

    Your Walt Disney World vacation is right around the corner. I bet you are getting so excited! Isn't it great that children under the age of 3 can enter the Walt Disney World Theme Parks for free? I like to consider it a gift from Mickey Mouse himself. Because your 2 year old does not require a theme park ticket, there is nothing to link to a My Disney Experience account. This means your child won't have any FastPass+ selections in his/her name. That's okay though because your child will still be allowed to ride with you, no problem! You'll just bring them along with you in the FastPass+ selection return queue. Because your child won't need any reservations in their name, they won't need a MagicBand dedicated to them during this vacation. Even though your child can eat for free at Walt Disney World restaurants, be sure to include them in the headcount when making a reservation. Per Florida state law, only so many bodies can be in a restaurant at any given time so adding them to the reservation will greatly help the Cast Members prepare for your visit. 

    I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
