    Hello I am going to WDW this October and my son is 10, his 1st time and my 2nd (Was there once 20 years ago). We will have about 4 full days at Disney, what parks do you highly recommend? Also, how does the Mickey band work and is that an extra cost?

    Hello Rebecca and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    It makes my heart happy to hEar you're returning to Walt Disney World Resort this coming October and introducing your dear son to the magic for the very 1st time; it's sure to be a trip that's practically perfect in every way. 
    Enjoying a whole 4 Disney days is super timing as you should be able to see and do a ton of pixie dusted things in each of the 4 Disney Theme Parks and I highly recommend planning via the convenience of My Disney Experience and My Disney Experience Mobile app which seamlessly links to MagicBands including all your hotel and dining reservations, Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ selections and so on.
    MagicBands are super easy to use and act as a true key to the world; with a small touch to a Mickey shaped sensor MagicBands will open the door to your Resort hotel room, when linked to Theme Park Tickets will provide access Disney Parks and to FastPass+ selections at Attractions and if linked to a credit card can be used to make purchases. Plus you may be pleased to know that MagicBands are complimentary items when staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or can be purchased by visiting Shop Disney Parks.
