    With Magic Bands, we will have children and we want to attach the credit card to the magic band(s) but we don't want the kids having access to this, can only the parents have access to this or is it all Bands on the room who can access this feature?

    Hi Douglas,

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation will provide so many special moments for your family to enjoy together, and I'm really excited to hear that you'll soon be visiting with your Mouseketeers.

    As a mama of five, I completely relate to your question. There's no way that I want to allow my kiddos to have access to charge whatever they want! I'm happy to tell you that you can stop by the front desk at your Disney Resort hotel and set up the MagicBand charging privileges however you'd like. In previous years, only my husband and I had access to make charges, but on this last vacation, we allowed our two oldest kiddos, who are both pretty responsible teenagers to have charging privileges. We, of course, made it really clear that we would see a detailed list of any charges (which, thankfully, is available right in the My Disney Experience mobile app, which makes keeping an eye on everything easy peasy), and that they would be responsible for paying us back for anything beyond the amount we had pre-approved. It was nice, though, that they had the ability to head out on their own for a bit, and we had the assurance that if they needed to buy some drinks or snacks, they could.

    Thanks so much for bringing your great question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Douglas, and please feel free to visit again with any other questions. I hope that you and your family have a truly magical vacation!
