    Were are coming to Disney World end of July, but are staying off site. I am thinking about purchasing Magic Band, just to make it easier to enter the parks and use fast pass. Can I link a credit card to Magic Band if not staying onsite?

    Welcome, Lisa, to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    We've often stayed off property during some of our Disney vacations and having a MagicBand just makes it so much easier to enter the theme parks and FastPass+ lines. Unfortunately, when staying off property, your MagicBand can't be used to make purchases, so having the capability to add a credit card to your My Disney Experience account for purchases isn't available. 

    You can store your credit card information on your My Disney Experience account to make Advanced Dining Reservations and to order food through your My Disney Experience account with the mobile order feature. We've loved using Mobile Ordering. We've been able to order our lunch while waiting in line for an attraction. Once we're done experiencing the magic of that attraction, we head straight over to where we've ordered our food, pick it up, and enjoy. This feature keeps us from having to wait in line to order and pick up our food but also allows us not to have to worry about pulling out our form of payment. 

    Lisa, I hope this helps a bit. If you have more planning questions, we're here to help. Please stop by and visit with us again soon!

    Wishing you magic and memories,
