    Hi, we are booked to stay May 2017, can we use a prepaid credit card linked to our room/magic band to purchase item at the parks.

    Hi Karen,

    Hooray for a vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort in May 2017! You will be able to experience Epcot's International Flower & Garden Festival! It is a beautiful display of flowers and topiaries!

    MagicBands are great! You can have your park tickets and FastPass+ right on your wrist. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you have your room key and can add charging privileges as well.

    You will need to place a credit card on hold to use the charging privileges. However, that does not need to be the final method of payment. As long as your pay the balance prior to reaching the spending limit of your resort with the prepaid credit card, you will not have a charge go to your credit card on file.

    For example, if the spending limit is $1000, you would need to go to the front desk prior to reaching a $1000 and pay down the balance with the prepaid card. We do this with gift cards or our Disney Rewards.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
