    Can I charge items on my band when not staying on property?

    Hi Betty Jane!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thanks for stopping by to ask a question about the amazing little accessory you see people wearing while on a Walt Disney World vacation;  the MagicBand.  

    Using a MagicBand to charge purchases is a wonderful perk.   I love not having to carry around a wallet or purse into the parks with me.   Currently MagicBand charging privileges are only available to Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.   If you stay off property you can still use your MagicBand to enter the Theme Parks, utilize your FastPass+ selections and attach Disney PhotoPass pictures to your account.  

    I suggest looking into purchasing Disney Gift Cards to use on your vacation.   This would save you from having to carry cash and they are easy to keep up with.  I often will buy a Disney Gift Card on my weekly grocery shopping trips and use them as my "Disney vacation savings fund".    By the time we visit I have a good amount saved up to spend on souvenirs, food and fun.  

    I hope this has helped.  If you have any another questions please don't hesitate to send them our way.  We love to help any chance we get.
