    Someone told me you could track your children with your phone using their magic bands, is this true? If so how???

    Hi Nell!

    Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are a wondEARful and convenient tool for your park tickets, FastPass+, making purchases and unlocking your Walt Disney World Resort hotel! Unfortunately, tracking an individual's location based on their MagicBand is not a feature that is available. While as a parent, it'd certainly be useful at times, it would be a violation of privacy to Guests, so not something that is able to be done.

    I'm wondering if your friend was referring to the ability to "track" your children's purchases through the My Disney Experience mobile app. With this new feature, if you log in and select My Plans you'll see an area that allows you to View Charges for your current reservation. Here you'll be able to see what charges have been made and by whom, if your child was granted charging privileges by you during check in.

    Please come back and let us know if you have any other questions before your upcoming visit!
