    Is there a way to add a certain $ amount to each persons magic band without linking each card to the room or credit card.

    Hi Laura!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    MagicBands are the niftiest Walt Disney World accessories!  They can be used to access Theme Park admission tickets, FastPass+ reservations, Disney Dining Plan entitlements, and link Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account.  You can even use a MagicBand to unlock the door to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room!

    Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests may use their MagicBands to charge dining and merchandise purchases to their room account, which are then charged to the credit card on file.  Many of us here at the Moms Panel like to use Disney Gift Cards to pay for incidentals, so we'll stop by the Front Desk of our resort to pay down our balance with a gift card before it is charged to our credit card.  If you are traveling with children and you do not wish them to have the ability to charge purchases to the room, or if you are traveling with another adult and you would like to each have your own credit card on file, stop by the Front Desk for assistance with charging privileges.

    At this time, it is not possible to add funds to a MagicBand.  All purchases made with a MagicBand will be added to the room account.  If you are looking for a way to limit spending, I recommend picking up some Disney Gift Cards and using those for purchases instead of charging with the MagicBands.  Often Disney Gift Cards are available at warehouse clubs for a slight discount, and Target also offers Disney Gift Cards at 5% off with a Target REDcard.

    I hope that helps!  Please stop by the Moms Panel again any time with any additional questions you may have.

    Enjoy your visit!
