    Welcome back to planDisney, Jillie!

    It is a pleasure to continue to assist you as you plan magical memories for your Walt Disney World Resort holiday!

    I am happy to hear that you are still considering purchasing MagicBands for your family! I love using my MagicBand to charge food and merchandises purchases to my room account during my stay, and I must say that it makes life easier while traveling with kids. I usually allow my oldest daughter to have charging privileges, and although we always set a daily spending limit, I prefer to double-check her purchases to be sure we are not going over our budget.

    While using a MagicBand, please note that purchases are not automatically charged to the credit card on file. They are charged to your room account and in the evening before you check out they are charged to your credit card. This means you can stop by Front Desk during your stay to check your room folio and see how much your family members are spending. Cast Members can help you manage charging privileges if you decide someone has spent a little too much, and you can even link a different credit card to your husband’s MagicBand, for example. 

    I hope this helps you while planning your holiday, Jillie! Be sure to check our Panel Extras for more tips and advice, and stop by once again real soon with more questions!

    Best Disney wishes,
