    We will be traveling w/ my daughter and her friend. I want them to be able to charge food to my card. I have everyone set up with MB and PIN. But for the mobile ordering, how will that work? Do one of them need to get the app & how do I link them 2 me?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Sarah!

    It is a pleasure to continue to assist you as you plan your upcoming summer visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I am happy to hear that you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Guests who stay in the middle of the magic can use their MagicBands to charge food and merchandise purchases to their room during their stay – this is one of my favorite Guest benefits!

    Although I love using my MagicBand, due to the current situation, to promote the health and safety of Guests and Cast Members, Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering should be your preferred method for placing meal orders during your visit. All orders are made and consequently paid for within the My Disney Experience mobile app, so you will not be able to charge purchases to your room. What your daughter and her friend can do is edit their Disney account profile to include your credit card as a payment method. This card will be kept on file and used as the default method of payment whenever they use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. They can also edit the method of payment each time they make a new purchase to use another credit card or even a Disney Gift Card

    Thank you for sending another question our way, Sarah! I hope this information is helpful and that you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
