    Online Check-In won't let me continue unless I set a PIN for the other guests, but in setting a PIN will they be able to charge to the card on file with their MagicBands, or can they link their MagicBands to their own cards for charging?

    Hi Jade!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I love the ability to pay for a snack or souvenir with the tap of a MagicBand. I'm so glad that I don't have to worry about carrying credit cards to the parks with me each day.

    I know you previously had a question regarding how to set up different credit cards to each MagicBand, so hopefully, this helps expand on how to arrange everything. The PIN you create during Online Resort Check-in is used just like one for your debit card: When you tap your MagicBand for payment, you'll enter to PIN to confirm the purchase. Once you have visited the Front Desk of your Walt Disney World Resort to link the correct MagicBand and Credit Card combinations, you'll be all set. You can ask them to change the PIN if you'd like, but it is not required.

    If you need to manage your MagicBands during your vacation, the My Disney Experience mobile app is your best bet. You can deactivate your band should you need to or activate a new one if you can't resist some of the super cute designs available at the parks. I have my eye on the Toy Story themed MagicBands. I'm sure I'll give in and purchase one during my next trip!

    I hope you have a great trip!
