    I am traveling with my best friend and our kids, sharing a room. Is it possible to each have our own credit cards linked to our rooms/magic bands/travel payments?

    Hi Jamie and welcome to planDisney!

    Vacations at Walt Disney World are so much fun, especially with friends!  I'm so excited for you and your bestie to make some magical memories together with your kiddos.

    MagicBands are such a great way to add a little magic to any Walt Disney World vacation.  They make opening your Disney Resort hotel room door, making purchases for dining and merchandise, entering the theme parks and accessing Lightning Lane queues, quick and convenient so you don't have to dig around in your bag for various cards. 

    I take trips with friends several times a year and I always link my own credit card to my MagicBand so I know I'm responsible only for the purchases I make.  To link separate credit cards to each MagicBand, visit the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel.  They can get your group sorted out in no time.  You can check your room charges throughout your vacation on the My Disney Experience Mobile App by clicking on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the home page, then clicking on "Resort Hotel" and then on "View Charges".  

    Since you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you have the option of pre-purchasing MagicBands at a discount.  If you haven't already done so, visit the Walt Disney World website and hover over the "My Disney Experience" tab at the top.  Click on "My MagicBands and Cards".  You can select and customize your MagicBands for your upcoming trip on that page.  Sometimes I can't access purchasing new bands on that page, so you can also access it on the planning page.  You can find the link under "Unlock the Magic with MagicBands" near the top right.

    MagicBand+ is the newest version of MagicBands and they offer extra pixie dust around the parks.  They light up, vibrate and dance to select nighttime shows, like the fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park.  My kids love to customize the light color combination on their bands throughout the day.  There are a variety of designs to choose from when you pre-purchase them or purchase in person at the parks. 

    Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
