Mobile Magic band question

Hi all my family and I are off on our florida adventure on Wednesday. Do i as party leader pay for everything on my magic band or do all the magic bands work for charging things to or can I select which ones work individually?

When you check in you can link a card to your room, and set which Magic Bands are allowed to 'tap and pay' for purchases, so no worries about your 7 year old spending $500 in the gift shop!

Lol that's what I was worried about but more like my 20 and 18 year old although my 2 year old is getting quite clever now and she has the bad influence of her two older sisters to sway her over to the dark side lol.thanks for your help

You can add a pin to your magic band. Then it is up to you if you want to share it to any one else in your group or not.

Have you got the dining plan too? You set up a pin for each magic individual band (we use year of birth as something easy to remember) and that is entered each time the band is used for charging or using dining credits. If you don't want your children to have charging privileges, just let the front desk know when you check in and they'll disable that function, but they'll still be able to use it for dining credits if you have a plan. Alternatively, if they have cards that they would like to charge to, you can get the CM to link their own cards to their magic bands, so they will get charged rather than you

We had to use a pin to make purchases, I didnít get the impression this was optional, so donít tell people the pin if you donít want random items charged.

Is that correct about entering PIN when using dining credits?
I only ask as I can't remember doing it in 2016, but more importantly, I've forgotten the PIN i used then and I can't edit it via MDE

Yes, it's 100% correct You hold your magic band to the reader, Mickey head goes green and then you enter your PIN number to authorise. We always set a pin up for our children too so they can get their own QS meals and snacks. It's a security feature so that if you lose your band and someone else finds it, they can use your dining plan credits or charge to your room.

Don't worry if you've forgotten your pin from last time as when you do online check-in you can set up a new pin for the new bands that you'll get when you check in. You can also do it with a CM when you get there too if you don't want to do online check-in.
