    Hello. 15 days until check in! On last visit, DDP entitlements could be accessed from any one of our KTTW cards. so, not all 4 family members had to show their card. Is this true with Magic Bands -- can one member pay for a meal for everyone? thanks

    Hi there, Christine!

    Only 15 days from check-in? You must be incredibly excited! It's such a magical time of the year to visit Walt Disney World! The Parks and Resorts are all dressed up in their Holiday best and it definitely gets you in the spirit!

    My family had the opportunity to test the MagicBands on our vacation last month and we had some experience with this. We've got a teenager and a tween in our family, so we felt comfortable granting charging privileges to them...with strict restrictions, of course! :) In my online My Disney Experience account, I was required to set up a 4-digit PIN number for each person with charging privileges. There was the option to have each person in the party use the same one as well. Needless to say, the kids both took advantage of "paying" for family meals with their MagicBands by entering their respective PIN numbers in order to process the transaction. It was pretty cool!

    Please be sure to keep in mind that the MagicBands are still being tested with select Guests at this time, so things could change by the time you arrive on your vacation. At this point, I'd definitely recommend bringing your 4 family members' MagicBands with you to dine just to play on the safe side. Be sure to check with the Cast Member when you check in at your Resort hotel to see if your entitlements from the Disney Dining Plan can be added to your MagicBands.

    I certainly hope this helps, Christine! Please be sure to let us know if we can help with any other questions you have!

    Wishing you a Pixie Dusted vacation!
