    I'm going with my children and grandchildren. The grandchildren are on a separate reservation with their parents. Can I link a credit card to their magic band so they can make purchases if I'm not there? Can I monitor purchase activity?

    Hi Lynda,

    My daughters love when their grandparents vacation with us especially to Walt Disney World!

    You can add your credit card to your grandchildren's MagicBands for charging. It can be done in My Disney Experience through their parent's account. There can be different cards for different people. We did this on our last trip with our friends. Our family had one card and their family used another. You can also do it at your Walt Disney Resort when you check-in.

    You can ask the front desk for a printout of your bill. It will list the purchases made using your card. We generally tell our daughters a limit on the amount they can charge without asking and anything over that amount, they need prior approval.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
