    will i be able to make purchases with my magic band if i am staying at the doubletree?

    Hiya Lesley - welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question for our team of panelists. We love to help Guests just like you plan your very own, very magical, Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Lesley, currently Guests of Disney-owned-and-operated Resorts are the only ones able to use their MagicBands to make purchases at Walt Disney World Resort. For these Guests, their MagicBand can be linked to the credit card they have on file at their Resort, and any charges made are connected to their Guest Room Account. Unfortunately, this service is not currently available at other hotels.

    I do have a suggestion for you if you'd like to make life a bit easier for yourself in the Theme Parks and beyond - you can purchase an electronic Disney Gift Card to use during your visit! Most smartphone mobile wallets can have the "card" added meaning you can use your phone to scan the Disney Gift Card to make purchases. I know it's not the same magic as using a MagicBand to tap for purchases, but it is an option you might want to consider.

    If using a MagicBand for payments is important to you, I recommend that you consider the Disney Resorts Collection on a future trip. In addition to being able to use your MagicBand for purchases, there are many other great benefits!

    I hope this information is helpful, Lesley - please stop by with more questions any time!
