    Can you check into a disney world resort without a credit card if you dont plan on using the magic band for purchases? What happens if you don't own a credit card?

    Hi, there!

     Lisa, your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner. You must be so excited! I'm sure you'll have a magical stay.

     Complimentary MagicBands are just one of the many benefits offered to Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel. These handy devices can be used to open your hotel room door, enter the theme parks, check-in at FastPass+ entrances, and connect Disney PhotoPass photos to your account! I especially love that I can charge food and merchandise purchases to my Disney Resort hotel room during my stay. Talk about convenience!

     If you choose to not place a payment card on your resort folio account for expenses and incidental charges, you will not be able to take advantage of charging privileges. Please note that debit cards are an acceptable form of a payment card. To further discuss your specific situation, I recommend calling the Reservation Center at (407) 939-1936. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to assist you!

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your arrival. With lots of cool features, it really is magic at your fingertips!

     Lisa, I hope this was helpful. I'm wishing you the most magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
