    Hello! I will have a credit card linked to my room. When I charge a purchase to my magicband, will it immediately charge that credit card, or will I be able to go to my hotel’s front desk to pay for that purchase with a gift card? Thank you!

    We are thrilled to welcome you to planDisney, Meghann!

    Thank you for sending a great question our way. It is a pleasure to assist you as you plan a pixie-dusted vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Your question involves two things I always take on Walt Disney World Resort visits: a MagicBand and Disney Gift Cards. One of my favorite Disney Resorts Collection Guest benefits is using my MagicBand to charge food and merchandise purchases to my room account during my stay. I love not having to worry about taking my wallet with me to the parks, and that is why I also use electronic Disney Gift Cards that I can link to my digital wallet on my mobile device.

    When you make purchases using a MagicBand, the charges are added to your room account, so the credit card on file is not immediately charged. Your credit card will only be charged for all expenses added to your room folio at midnight on the check-out date. If you would like to use a Disney Gift Card instead of your credit card, I recommend stopping by Front Desk the evening before the date of check-out to pay for the charges.

    I hope this information is helpful, Meghann! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
