    how to prevent a 9 year old from having charging privilidges?

    Hi Pete! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I bet you are extremely excited to begin your Walt Disney World Resort vacation today! With summer temperatures already in full force at "The Most Magical Place on Earth," you will want to check out these tips on how to keep cool during your vacation. They are really helpful!

    You will be pleased to know that you can ask that your 9-year-old not have charging privileges by visiting the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel. A Cast Member at the Front Desk can make this adjustment for you. In my experience, you have to enter a PIN code to charge to your MagicBand as well, which offers an extra layer of protection to your account.

    I recommend you download the My Disney Experience mobile app and link your Disney Resort hotel reservation to it. By doing so, you will be able to view your account charges on your phone, as well as many other exciting features like bus wait times, attraction wait times, park hours, FastPass+ selections, dining reservations, and even the ability to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room!

    Enjoy every moment of your visit, Pete! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
