    How do I link my credit card to my son’s magic band?

    Hello there, Candace!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with a fantastic Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. It looks like you've just arrived at The Most Magical Place on Earth to begin your enchanting vacation - how exciting! I'm happy to help your family members maximize the pixie dust of their MagicBands for use throughout your stay.

    Candace, when a Guest uses a MagicBand to make a purchase at the Walt Disney World Resort, they're charging items to their Disney Resort hotel folio. When you check in at your Resort hotel, you'll have the option to choose which members of your travel party will have charging privileges linked to their bands. To ensure your son will be able to charge purchases using his MagicBand, confirm that: 1) he is listed as a Guest on the Resort hotel reservation, 2) you've opted for him to charge items to your Resort hotel folio, and 3) he is familiar with the PIN you set for your hotel account. Additionally, if you'd like to set up the ability for Guests to charge purchases to different credit cards based on their individual MagicBands, this will be possible with help from a friendly Cast Member at the Front Desk when you check in at your Resort hotel!

    Disney Gift Cards offer a simple alternative to MagicBand room charges, Candace. With these handy cards, your son could make dining and merchandise purchases throughout the Walt Disney World Resort without the opportunity to become "overzealous" with room charges! My husband and I like to provide our son with a Disney Gift Card of a set amount before our vacations. This practice helps children develop an understanding of budgeting while still allowing them flexibility and independence in the theme parks!

    Candace, I hope you've found this information helpful and wish you and your family a magical and memorable Walt Disney World Resort vacation. If you have any additional questions throughout your stay, you're always welcome to pop back over to planDisney again. We're here to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
