    Can I add a PIN to a child’s magic band?

    Welcome to planDisney, Marian!

    Oh, you are about to arrive at Walt Disney World during an extra magical time of year--you must be so excited!

    When we are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, we're sure to bring a MagicBand or two per person (I like to coordinate with the season... :-) ), and that PIN is the key to ensuring everyone has the ability to use their MagicBand for charging purposes. If you set up your child's account to be able to charge to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel account, you'll have a PIN to enable that to happen also. Because my children may have been touring for a bit with a grandparent, or, when they got older, touring with a friend, I wanted them to be able to make purchases and grab a snack or a beverage whenever needed, and the MagicBand is the perfect way to make that happen. 

    You can find more information regarding MagicBands by reading through Frequently Asked Questions, or, of course, by asking us additional questions here at planDisney.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app, too, so that each of you can see lots of information, including all of those dining options such as Mobile Food and Beverage Orders. It's another great way to enable you to tour without needing a wallet or bag. I love it!

    Happy planning, Marian! Be sure to send additional questions our way as you think of them. We love to help!
