    We will be at WDW in April with our 8, 6, and 1 year old. We just got the packet to personalize Magic Bands & was surprised to see we could personalize one for our one year old. Should we make FP+ selections for him? Will he have to wear the band?

    Hi Alyssa,

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel.  Thank you for asking such great questions.  I just returned from a trip with my family where each of my kids (9, 2 and 1) had a Magic Band.   It worked out great for the 2-year-old to be able to be like his brother and wear his all day, but don't worry, you don't need to manage them as you do the others.  Since your son won't have a park ticket you will not need to make FastPass+ selections for him and he won't need to wear his band.  I love the fact that it will be a lasting memento for my daughters first visit, but we left her Magic Band in the room during our entire vacation.

    Enjoy your wonderful adventure and please let us know if there is anything else we can answer for you.

    Magical Wishes,
