Preventing kids from charging

Is there a way to deactivate charging privileges from my two kids magic bands?
I did put a pin code on for all the bands but know realize that I want to prevent them from charging. But I don't see a way to do it on MDE.
I have stayed at the following.....

All Star Music
All Star Sports
Caribbean Beach Resort
Port Orleans-Riverside
Yatch Club

Next up, Coronado Springs Resort

When you check in, they will ask you if you want to enable charging on the bands...that's when you can tell them not to enable it on the kids'...that's how we did it...gave our daughter a Disney Reward card to use for purchases.

I think you have to wait until you check in and have them do it for you.

Agree we never give our kids charging privaleges. I remember our first family cruise the first thing I did was remove them from our cards.

I was glad we did one of my daughters friends lost their card and another one charged a ton of stuff without the parents knowing.

You can also put a pre-paid balance on at check-in that allows charging but limits to a certain amount. We do this for our teen because we allow him to eat on his own, but we don't want him going hog-wild with the amount and type of food he buys. He is given a certain amount, and when it's gone, it's gone.
