    Taking grandkids under my reservation if parents have them while we go back to rm. Will their magicbands work with their parents. Also can i setup fast pass. For everyone

    Hi Patricia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for bringing this question to us. I think it is official. You are in the running for grandparent of the year! How awesome of you to take your grandchildren on a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Your grandchildren will enjoy using their MagicBands while at the resort and in the theme parks! Upon check-in, MagicBands are assigned to a specific Resort Hotel room and can only open that room. When I contacted Guest Services to verify this answer, the cast member who spoke with me indicated that this is a safety feature. If you are traveling with their parents, you may want to request connecting rooms.

    Your grandchildren will still be able to use their MagicBands to make purchases if you have given them charging privileges. Remember that they will need to know the pin number to the account to be able to make charges to the MagicBand! They will also still be able to enter the parks with their MagicBands as long as they have valid theme park tickets associated with those MagicBands. Policies can change, however, so just double-check with Guest Services when you arrive.

    With Fast Pass+ you can book reservations for each person on your "Friends and Family" list in My Disney Experience. So, just be sure that your children and grandchildren are listed on your "Friends and Family" list. I am the official "Maker of the Fast Passes" for my family. It is one of my favorite things to do!

    I do hope this helps!

    Happy Planning.
