    I am thinking of getting a Magicband+ for my 4.5 year old, but I don’t want him to be able to pay for anything with it. Am I able to restrict that park of the link to my account?

    Hey there, Kacie. Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question. 

    Your 4.5-year-old is going to love using his new MagicBand+. It's a lot of interactive fun. On my last trip to Walt Disney World a few weeks ago, my daughter, who is 15 by the way, used hers for the first time and it was equally as fun to see her face light up when it would buzz as we got closer to the golden statues around the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. It was like a little scavenger hunt throughout the day. So I can only imagine what it will be like for your son! 

    I think you'll be happy to know that you can absolutely turn off the charging feature on his new MagicBand. That's a great idea, especially if it were to be lost or something like that. This can easily be done by stopping by the front desk of the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel that you happen to be staying at and having a friendly Cast Member assist you. Also, I wanted to mention that if the MagicBand+ does get lost, you can always log in to your MyDisneyExeperience app and head to the MagicBand section and turn that particular band off so that it is no longer in use. It's as easy as bibbidi bobbidi boo!

    If you aren't seeing a particular MagicBand+ that you think he would like, you can also find them for sale at almost all merchandise locations around the Walt Disney World Resort. I know sometimes I like the selection that is in person better than what is available online. If you wait to purchase it until then, linking and pairing directions are on the packaging so I don't think you'll have any trouble with that at all. 

    Kacie, I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
