    Hi! If I have a credit card linked to my account can i use it to make purchases with my magic band? We are not staying on property and it is the older band

    Welcome to planDisney, Marie! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today. MagicBands are one of my favorite tech tools to use at Walt Disney World Resort to make my vacation run smoothly and easily. I actually just ordered a brand new MagicBand+ for my trip in a few weeks, and I'm excited about all the new interactive features. MagicBands have lots of uses, so let's jump right in and chat about them!

    Marie, paying for purchases with a MagicBand is a feature that is exclusively for Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. If you are staying somewhere off Walt Disney World Resort property, your MagicBand is not able to be used as a payment method. If you're looking for a quick and easy way to make purchases while you're on vacation, I recommend a Disney Gift Card! You can add it to your mobile wallet and scan it at merchandise and dining locations around Walt Disney World Resort. You can also use contactless forms of payment like Apple Pay and Google Pay, and, of course, all major credit cards are accepted, as well as cash in most locations.

    I hope this answers your question, Marie, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
