    Hello, I have the magic bands and I was wondering if I can add money to them for my kids. That way they can each buy what they want?

    Hi Ana,

    Thank you for stopping by with your question. I love MagicBands for many reasons and one of them is the ability to customize them according to your needs.

    When you check-in to your Disney Resort Hotel, you'll be able to customize spending privileges for each member in your party, including the kids, as well as set a daily spending limit for each person. I love this option because it allows a little financial freedom for the younger ones without endangering your bank account. Your children will each choose a 4-digit PIN to make purchases, so make sure it's something they can remember!

    The credit card you use at check-in will be the default payment option for any MagicBand purchases. However, you can always stop by the Front Desk to pay charges using another method of payment, such as cash or a Disney Gift Card. You also have the option to completely disable the spending option if you wish.

    I hope this helps you plan a magical visit, Ana. Wishing you many happy memories at Walt Disney World!

    Andrea U.
