    We are arriving from Canada on Oct. 27th. We must pick up our magic bands as they don't get delivered to Canadian residents. I have linked the resorts and park passes already but can I link a credit card to a band or do I have to do that at check-in?

    Hello Art! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    While it is sad that we Canadians must wait until we arrive at Walt Disney World Resort to receive our MagicBands, it is comforting to know that any plans made through My Disney Experience will already be available when we finally do put them on.

    When you use the Online Resort Check-In Service through My Disney Experience up to 60 days in advance of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you are able to attach a credit card to the account and set a PIN for purchases to be made through your MagicBands. The default Credit Card you used when you booked your vacation will be available to use and you are free to alter it at this point of the Check-In process.

    While you do not have to link a Credit Card to your MagicBand at Guest Services upon your arrival if you have already done so through My Disney Experience, you must visit Guest Services to receive your MagicBands anyway and Cast Members always ask me if the Credit Card they have on file is suitable.

    So go ahead and have fun organizing your Online Resort Check-In, FastPass+ Selections and Advanced Dining Reservations knowing that your MagicBands will be awaiting your arrival with all of their magic in tow.

    Be sure to look into the recent offer for discounts on Theme Park Admissions currently available to Canadian Residents for any future Walt Disney World Resort plans. 

    Have a Magical Vacation!
