For my shopping for my trip, I’m mulling over a couple of ideas. I’ll have teenagers. I’m giving each of them $200 for the trip to blow on whatever shirts or hats or chotchkies they want. It’s important to me (and my sanity) to put the responsibility on them to decide what to buy. I don’t want to give them cash, but I’m not sure the best alternative. I could:
A) Give them a Visa gift card. But are minors allowed to use those in stores? Would an ID be expected?
B) Give them a Disney gift card (if there is such a thing). But then unspent money would be lost.
C) Is it possible to load shopping money onto their Magic Bands, and is unspent money recoverable?
Also, is $200 a reasonable number, or has inflation gotten to the point that $200 would buy them a T-shirt and a stick of gum?
