    we will be coming to disney in july 2017 can i put 100.00 on each of my kids magic bands so they have some spending money of there own and just use the bands when purchasing items. i dont want to put a credit card on each band. thankyou,

    Hello Lisa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are extremely convenient and really make our lives easier while visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. They become your tickets to the theme parks and water parks, they are the key to your Disney Resort hotel room, hold the entitlements of your Disney Dining Plan, your FastPass+ selections, and can also be used to pay for food and merchandise throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. All you have to do is add a valid credit card to your Disney account, create a PIN, and leave your wallet back in your room.

    In your case, I suggest giving each of your kids a Disney Gift Card that can be conveniently purchased online. You can even manage all cards, checking and transferring balances. The card is delivered to your home when you buy it online, and you can even personalize it. There are not fees, they never expire, and can be used throughout the Walt Disney World Resort at Disney owned and operated locations where credit cards are accepted. Just remember that some carts and other outdoor merchandise vendors may not be able to accept them. I think this is the perfect gift to get your kids excited about their vacation!

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
