    my 1yr old doesn't need a park ticket and doesn't need to have fast pass reservations for the rides we take him on. Is this correct? However he gets a Magic band. Does this sound right? Does he still get to tag along on rides that I fp for Myself?

    Hello Heather!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Walt Disney World Resort is the greatest vacation destination for families of all shapes, sizes and ages, and that includes the youngest Mouseketeers.  In fact, I was sure to go on as many Walt Disney World Resort vacations before my children passed the 3-year threshold that meant that they would require their own tickets and charged for their meals (instead of eating off of Daddy's plate).

    Since your 1-year old does not require a ticket and is granted complimentary admission to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, it is not possible to book Fastpass+ selections for them.  However, children under 3 do not require Fastpass+ reservations if they are experiencing an attraction with an adult that already has Fastpass+ reservations.  Children under 3 are still expected to adhere to any height restrictions for any attractions that adults Guests wish to experience.  

    Even if an adult would really like to experience an attraction that their little one is not capable of riding, Guests can take advantage of Rider Switch, a feature which allows adult Guests to take turns waiting with youngsters or Guests unable to ride.

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation is an Endlessly Magical experience for the entire family where the needs of every member are taken into consideration.  

    In addition, your little one will still receive their own MagicBand.  My 2-year old loved wearing his and would insist on scanning it everywhere that Mommy, Daddy and Big Sister scanned theirs.  The Cast Members even played along to make the scanning an enjoyable experience for my son.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
