    Can I add my debit card to the magic band, And how do I use the magic band and fastpass ?


    Aren't MagicBands great? I love the convenience of having just one spot for my park tickets, resort room key, FastPass+, and room charging ability all in one spot!

    For guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you can link a card for room-charging privileges during the online check-in process. This will allow you to simply tap your MagicBand, enter your PIN number which you selected during the online check-in process as well, and that's it! You'll be on your way so quickly.

    Using your MagicBand for FastPass+ is super easy as well. When you arrive at the attraction during your designated time, you'll tap the band to a special podium (line up the Mickey on your MagicBand on the Mickey on the Podium) and the light will turn green. This means you are good to proceed to your attraction. If you have any issues, there will be Cast Members nearby who can help you.

    Another great benefit of online check-in is the ability to go directly to your resort room upon arrival. As soon as your room is ready, you'll receive a text or a notification in the My Disney Experience mobile app. You'll be informed of your room number and receive a link to a map of your resort. Then you can proceed directly to your room, and use your MagicBand as your room key. You can even enable your smart phone to work as a room key if you'd like!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation!
