    I'll be coming to Walt Disney World on Nov 2, 2019, When should I receive my Magic Bands ? Also, can I limit how much can be charged on one of the Magic Bands ?

    Hi, John!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Your magical vacation is just a little over a week away!  I am so excited for you!  Autumn is a wonderful time to fall into magic at the Walt Disney World Resort.  During your visit, be sure to check out one of my favorite events, the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival.  I highly recommend the loaded macaroni & cheese at the Active Eats booth and the maple bourbon cheesecake at the Cheese Studio.  These were two of my festival favorites this yEAR!

    Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will receive complimentary MagicBands.  This is just one of the many benefits of staying right in the middle of the magic.  Usually, when I customize my family's MagicBand order, it is shipped to our home a few weeks before our vacation.  You may want to take a look at the MagicBand section of your My Disney Experience account to see if there is a notification regarding the shipment of your MagicBands.  If you have any questions about this, feel free to call the Help Center phone number for My Disney Experience, MagicBands, and FastPass+, and a Cast Member will be happy to assist you.

    The ability to make purchases using your MagicBand is one of my favorite features.  I love the convenience of not having to dig through my bag for my wallet every time I need to buy a Dole Whip or a Mickey pretzel.  When you use your MagicBand to make a purchase, you are actually charging that purchase to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room.  While you cannot set a limit on how much can be charged, you can choose to only select certain guests to give charging privileges to.  For example, on our family vacations, my husband and I have the ability to make purchases using our MagicBands, but my children do not.  You can speak to a Cast Member when you check into your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel about getting this set up for you.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
