MagicBands are now seen all over the Walt Disney World Resort. They are on the wrist of most theme park visitors, and many have already become familiar with them. That said, there may still be some issues using them, as it is very easy to lose track of purchases made around the parks.

Thanks for sharing but this app is pretty pointless. First of all, this app does NOT link up with your MagicBands. You have to manually enter costs. So just about any budgeting app you have on your smartphone would work fine. This app is not free. It costs $2.99. Not trying to bash it. There may be some value here. Just didn't want anyone to assume this was a Disney app. It is not.

whoooo... that budget almost knocked me off my seat. Another reason why it's great to live in Florida. My Disney budget is usually around $30 per trip.
