    I am traveling to Disney with my 18 mo old and 4 yr .Will the 18 mo old need a magic band? Also do I include him in the number of people when I make reservations for places (example: 2 adults my 4 yr old and 18 mo old) Do I make the res. for 4 or 3 ppl?

    Hello Megan,

    Thanks for stopping by with your great question. Your 18 month old will not require park admission as he/she is under the age of 3). Therefore, he/she doesn't need a Magic Band. However, you will need to include him/her in your reservations for dining.This is only to ensure that you are at a big enough table and also so that they know to expect to add a booster or high chair to the table. But, yet again, you will not be paying for your 18 month old to eat unless you order him/her a separate meal. If your child shares from your plated dinner or buffet, you shouldn't be charged for the child to eat.

    I hope this clarifies this for you.
