    I want to allow my 18 and 11 year old to make purchases in park on their magic bands. How do i se that up?

    Hi Michael! Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you have a fun family vacation coming up soon! MagicBands make getting around the theme parks a breeze with a simple tap to enter the theme parks and capture PhotoPass photos. Plus, their assortment of designs and colors make them fashionable!

    To use your MagicBands for purchases in the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, you must be a Guest staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. MagicBand purchases are charged directly to the hotel account which is connected to a credit card for charges. As long as you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel and your MagicBands are linked to the My Disney Experience accounts of all those on the reservation, you should be all set!

    When you use Online Check-In or visit the Front Desk to put a credit card on your account, you will set up a 4-digit PIN to enter each time a purchase is made with a MagicBand. Your kids will need to have this number for their purchases. You can also verify at the Front Desk that everyone on your reservation is set up to make purchases before heading out to enjoy the theme parks.

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, Michael! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
