    How do I add a credit card to our magic bands

    Welcome to planDisney, Patty!

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question about MagicBands. It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel during your visit, the credit card linked to your reservation will be used to charge food and merchandise purchases made with your MagicBand. If you would like to link different credit cards to different MagicBands on the same reservation, please stop by Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel and Cast Members will be happy to assist you.

    If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to use your MagicBand to charge for food and merchandise purchases during your visit. You will still be able to use it to enter the theme parks (with valid admission) and link Disney PhotoPass content to your Disney account. You can also use a mobile device like a smartwatch to pay for food and merchandise throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. I usually use my Apple Watch to pay for purchases! It works just as a MagicBand and you can charge your credit card. You are also welcome to link a credit card to My Disney Experience and use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    I hope this information is helpful, Patty! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions and be sure to check our Panel Extras for more tips and advice!

    Best magical wishes,
