    Does a 2 year old need to have a magic band. I know they get in free, but should they have one linked to their parents account?

    Hello, Adrianne!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We are so excited to help answer your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!

    I want to let you know that your two year old does not need a Disney MagicBand.  MagicBands are designed to help guests unlock their Disney Resort rooms, enter into Disney Theme Parks, and make make food and merchandise purchases during their vacation. Because there is no charge for a child under three years old at Walt Disney World, there is no reason to link a MagicBand for your two year old to your account.  

    If you have other questions, please do not hesitate to ask us!  We are here to help in any way!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
