    Can someone on my account use their own card to charge. We have a friend coming and don’t want them to charge a lot on my card

    Hello there, Kelly!

    Whether or not your friend’s shopping habits resemble Sharpay Evans from High School Musical, it’s always a good idea to divvy up expenses to ensure that everyone has a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation. 

    If you’re staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you’ll be able to link a MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass to the same credit card that is linked to your Resort hotel folio. In your situation, I recommend asking a Cast Member at the front desk to link different credit cards to each person’s MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass when you check in. This way, your party will be able to use their own credit card to pay for their own purchases. Everyone will need to use a PIN code to finalize purchases and uniquely identify themselves to make purchases. If you don’t want to spend time at the front desk sorting this out, you can simply ask your friend to make purchases using their physical credit card rather than using their MagicBand or pass. 

    Now, your party will also be able to make in-app purchases using the My Disney Experience mobile app for things like Genie+ or mobile ordering. Everyone in your party will need a My Disney Experience account and can setup a payment method in their own mobile app. To check the payment method in your mobile app, select the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner of the screen, scroll down and select “My Profile,” and select “Payment Method.” From here, you can check what payment method is linked to each person’s account for mobile in-app purchases. 

    I hope you found these tips and tricks helpful. 

    May the magic be with you!
