    Will a child have access to charge on a wristband at a gift shop?

    Hi Carol!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I still remember as a child the first time I discovered I could "charge to the room" on a vacation and my parents were certainly shocked upon check-out, so I must admit I giggled aloud when I read your question!

    You are able to choose which MagicBands in your party are able to have charging capabilities and which are not. You can either set this up within 60 days of your arrival by beginning the Online Resort Check-In process on your My Disney Experience account or when you physically check in to your resort after you arrive on property. For the bands you would like to set up to charge, you will choose a 4 pin code that will be needed to complete any purchase. If you'd like your child to have the ability to charge, you can certainly set this up! On the other hand, if your little one having this capability makes your stomach drop like you're on Rock 'n Roller Coaster, you can certainly prevent it.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and I hope y'all have a wondEARful trip!
