If the state does not allow re-loading, you'd either have to issue a new bracelet, or you could conceivably add a removable "charm" for the bracelet with gift card functionality(using mag stripe tech or rfid). Allowing children to be able to freely charge to a room can be an adventure for the parents and the CM helping them decipher. If they allow a credit card backing, and you choose a debit card, you really are asking for some pain if you allow your child to charge to it. Of course that is a parenting issue, rather than a tech issue.
The Walt Disney company will fight any movement by the states of Florida and California to not allow reloading of giftcards until the cows come home.
I don't know about Cali...but Florida would crumble like a house of cards under their lobbying pressure.
