    What can you charge on your magic band? Food, tips, souvenirs etc. Is there a limit?? How much?

    Greetings Kimberly, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are absolutely amazing and I cannot imagine visiting the Walt Disney World Resort without one! It is magical to think that they can be used to enter theme parks and water parks (with valid admission), check-in at FastPass+ entrances, redeem Disney Dining Plan meals, link all Disney PhotoPass digital content to My Disney Experience, and even unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel room.

    However, one of my favorite benefits as a Disney Resort hotel Guest is being able to use my MagicBand to make purchases during my stay. With a valid credit card linked to your Disney account, you can use your band to charge food, merchandise and services to your hotel room. My personal experience is that they are accepted at most dining and merchandise locations, and when you are paying for dining you can include the tip with payment since it will be charged from your credit card.

    Each Disney Resort hotel has a different daily spending limit for MagicBands, so I highly recommend checking your limit with Front Desk upon arrival. Each time you reach that limit the credit card linked to your account is charged, so be sure to plan accordingly.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Kimberly! Please stop by once again real soon, we are delighted to help.

    Best magical wishes,
