    We're bringing two of my son's friends along with us on our Disney trip. Their parents would like to know how to add their credit card to each of their son's apps? Is there a way?

    Hi there! Welcome to planDisney!

    Well, Angelo, I bet you are earning some super-duper parenting points by taking your son's friends with you on your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! I mean, any visit to Walt Disney World is amazing, but having your best pals along for the adventure is an extra special treat! I'm sure they will build memories together that will last a lifetime!

    So, let's get to your question, shall we? You can absolutely add a credit card to each child's My Disney Experience app by following these simple steps:

    • Log into their My Disney Experience App.
    • Open the menu on the bottom right-hand corner (three stacked horizontal lines).
    • Scroll down and click on "My Profile."
    • From there, select "Payment Method" then "Add a Payment Method."
    • Follow the prompts to add the credit card, and you are all set.

    I think it is important to note that the credit card saved in the My Disney Experience app can only be used for in-app purchases and transactions. For example, mobile food orders, Disney PhotoPass purchases, and merchandise purchases via the Shop in Store feature. Therefore, should the kids want to purchase a snack, souvenir or other items not available in the app, they won't be able to use that credit card to process the payment.

    So, I would actually highly recommend having their parents purchase some Disney Gift Cards to send with the kids on your trip. This way, they are preloaded with a budgeted amount to spend for foods, gifts, and whatever other transactions they will make throughout the parks. It's also a great way to ensure they don't go a little wild with their snacks purchases and spend too much. Given how irresistible the food is throughout Walt Disney World, it's an easy mistake to make! As a bonus, you can also use the Disney Gift Cards for those in-app purchases and mobile orders as well. I think this is another fabulous option to consider, Angelo!

    I do hope this has been helpful to you! Please feel free to stop by again if you have any other vacation planning questions. If I don't speak with you again, I'll be wishing you an absolutely wonderful vacation!

    See you real soon!
