Can you decorate the Magic Bands without it affecting the scanning capabilities?

There are five of us (adults) staying in an A of A suite next weekend. Question: can we each link a card to our magic bands and be responsible for our own charges? Or will they only charge to a singular card tied to the room?

Technically, yes you can do this. In reality, the results have varied. Some people reported it works fine, but some have had lots of mix-ups. It is suggested that you check your charges at the front desk a time or two during your trip to make sure it is working properly.

We shared a two bedroom villa with family last year. Their 2 MB's had their cc # attached & our two MB's had our cc # attached. All of their charges showed up on our bill though so as a pp said, if you do this, you'll want to check your charges at the front desk everyday to make sure they are charging correctly.

I see. Can the front desk at least print out a list of charges per magic band? Or no? Wishful thinking? Lol

The only issue is with the way Disney charges and the $1500 limit. We prepaid our whole room but they still put on the total for each night as part of your $1500 ( which we didn't realize,) so we were shopping and they told us we were over our credit limit. Thank goodness we had cash with us!
Glad you had a great time

I'm just a little concerned about using the CC for our charges.
We have our Disney Visa attached to our MDE. We would like to get our points
Will we have this same problem as you did when we go to charge during our stay with the $1500 limit. Our room is about $300 a nite so certainly if you add it up it will be over the limit.
Why would they put your hotel room as a charge for each night when you pay in full in advance.

Thanx for your help

Credit Card question

How and when can you set up your MB as a resort credit card?

My answer is likely in this lengthy thread already. I did a search but didn't find an answer in the first dozen posts returned and I didn't have the patience to keep digging.

Thanks in advance!

Well, I certainly hope so, since a lot of people are doing it :

Your credit card information is attached to your room reservation. It can be added during online check-in and re-confirmed when you physically check-in.

Whenever you use your MB as payment, the amount is charged to your room account and the balance is then applied to your credit card.

No, the gift cards can be applied against the balance of your room resort charges at the Front Desk of your resort.

Preparing for my Dec trip & first time using the magic bands and have a question. We are there 5 days and have a 4 day hopper and a MVMCP ticket. The day of the party we aren't going into another park prior to that. My question is two fold:
1. Should we use the physical tickets to enter the party, instead of our magic bands? I don't want to scan our band at 4pm to get into the party and instead of it reading the party ticket it reads a day from our hopper.

2. Although the party officially starts at 7pm, I know we can get into the park at 4pm. Can we schedule fastpasses for 4-7pm?

Thanks!

As long as you go through the separate entrance for party guests, you should be able to scan either you MB or you physical ticket, so it's your choice. Yes, you can schedule FP from 4-7.
