    I have a 5yr old, 7 yr old 11 yrs old and a 14 yr old that have all been saving money for our Disney trip they have saved over 100 each dont want them to carry cash any suggestions?

    Wow! Your kids have done an excellent job in saving up their money for your vacation. I can understand that you don't want them carrying all of that cash around. One thing that I would recommend is getting them each a Disney gift card with their saved money. You could hang on to their gift cards and when they want to buy something give it to them to use. The cast member who checks you out at any of the shops will be able to tell you how much balance you have remaining. This would be an easy way to keep their money separate, but you would only need to worry about four gift cards instead of a bunch of bills and change.

    Another option would be to charge their purchases to your room. You can visit the front desk at your resort at any time during your trip to apply cash to your room balance. If you save all of your receipts, you could tally up what each child has spent each day and keep track that way.

    I would probably go for the gift cards as I think it would be easiest on you! Have a wonderful trip with your family! It sounds like your children will have a great time shopping for souvenirs!
