    My hubby & all 3 sons are listed in friends & family. When I try to set a PIN for resort charges, I can't see my eldest son listed & can't set a PIN for him. How can I set up to allow him to make charges?

    Hi Lorrie,

    I bet you're getting super excited for your visit to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" this holiday season! With the entire Resort in full-on festive mode, you're going to fill your heart with Disney magic and Christmas joy!

    When you set up your 4-digit personal identification number (PIN) during the online check-in process, that number will work for all members of your party with charging privileges. If you'd like to make any changes beyond that, I'd encourage you to stop by the front desk at your Disney Resort hotel. You'll be able to set it all up however it will work best for your family, and can restrict charging privileges, add separate credit cards, and even change individual PIN numbers if you'd like.

    From one parent to another, don't forget that you can see a list of all of the spending charges and who made them all within your My Disney Experience mobile app. I love allowing my big kids the freedom to charge something if need be, but I'm sure I sound like Roz from Monsters, Inc. when I tell them I can see what they're spending. "I'm watching. Always watching." That's what we do as parents, though, right?

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel again, Lorrie, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and your family have a truly magical vacation!
