    Hello! Can you add cash to your account to use on your magicband? Thank you!

    Hi Lauren,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are a fantastic addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It's so easy and convenient to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Plus, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will be able to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort with your MagicBand, which eliminates the needs to retrieve your credit cards or cash throughout your theme park day!

    In order to use your MagicBand to make purchases, you must be a Guest at a Disney Resort hotel. Your purchases made using your MagicBand will be charged to your hotel room folio and the balance of your account will be charged to the credit card on your account at the conclusion of your vacation. During your vacation, you can pay down the charges on your account using cash or Disney Gift Cards before they are charged to your credit card by visiting the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel, but unfortunately there is no way to add cash to your account prior to your purchases. If you will be paying for your purchases using cash, you will need to do that before your final night as I have found that my purchases are generally charged to my credit card overnight on the final night of my reservation.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
