Can you link individual cards to individual Magic bands?

Im a huge proponent of Paying with my magic band, and always have a card linked for such things. Taking my niece and nephew in august, and wondered is there a way to link their own form of payment so they have some personal spending money? ( we will be spoiling the crap out of them, but thought it might also be nice for them to have a set amount of money of their own to do what they want with) Can this be done via the app? Plan B is just hand them a gift card, or just put it all on the Disney Visa for the points etc, but wondered if this could be done.

It can but not in the app.

The front desk can link a different CC to each person’s band. You can’t link a gift card.

What they could do if you wanted would be to set a limit for each of them and they could then charge their band up to that limit. That means it could still go to your account but they couldn’t run amok! They would need the PIN to be able to charge. Again the front desk CMs need to set that up.

Darn, as they are both teens, and will be with both of us we actually have a greater risk of them not asking for things vs asking for too many things. We were hoping to link a couple gift cards that they could choose to bring home something for their brother and sister that get to go on the trip after these 2. ( we split it out to 2 trips as 4 kids at once seemed a bit daunting. )

You could just give them a gift card each then.

But letting them charge up to a limit of whatever you choose could work. It would also allow them to buy their own snacks etc. We found it worked great when our boys were teens. We set an initial limit and then when we did an afternoon at DS we increased the limit before we left the resort so they could get tees / hoodies / what they wanted within reason without having to come find us to pay.

Gift card i think will work best. We will still take care of stuff, and get them the majority of the stuff, Its our job to spoil em :angelic::happy: We just thought it might be nice for them to have something where they can pick out a few things of their own and pay themselves etc.
