    HI, Can you set up individual spending limits to children's magic bands? If not can each one be set up to a different bank card? I'd like to give them all a spending allowance without the stress or risk of them losing cash or gift cards. Thanks..

    Young Padawan Laura, I would love to teach you the ways of the Force, or in this case the ways of the MagicBand!

    I absolutely love the convenience of using a MagicBand. They are a fun and helpful way to access your theme park admission and FastPass+ reservations. As well as, link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account and unlock your Disney Resort Hotel Room! The best part is, as a Guest staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you are also able to use your MagicBand to make charge purchases to your room folio, which will then be billed to the credit card on file.

    You will be thrilled to hEAR that you can absolutely put a spending limit on each individual MagicBand. My fellow panelist, Jen, does this with her own teenage daughter and loves being able to! It’s the perfect way to stay and keep your family on budget! All you have to do is visit a Cast Member at the front desk of your hotel when you check in so that they can make those arrangements for you! While setting up those limits, you may also ask the Cast Member to link a separate credit card to their individual MagicBands, if you wish to do that too!

    Don’t worry, I sense that the Force is strong with you. After you’ve made these arrangements upon your arrival I know you will be ready to Rise to the occasion and defeat The First Order!

    Rising Moons!
