    My daughter is going to Disney and is staying with a friend at one of the resorts. They are getting magic bands. I am able to add her credit card to her own band vs the credit card used for the reservation?

    Hi Shannon! Welcome to planDisney! 

    One of my favorite features of the MagicBand and MagicBand+ is that you can charge any purchases around the Walt Disney World Resort with a simple tap. Although the resort stay was booked with another credit card, your daughter will still be able to take advantage of this feature using her own band and credit card. 

    As soon as she arrives to the Resort hotel, I recommend that your daughter visits a Cast Member at the front desk to help her with this convenience. She should have her MagicBand or MagicBand+ and credit card ready to go, and the Cast Member will happily link the card. She will be asked to set up a PIN as well.

    AN EXTRA GEM: After your daughter’s first purchase using her MagicBand or MagicBand+, I recommend that she double checks that the link worked. She can check the My Disney Experience app by clicking the Resort Hotel icon and then tap “View Charges.”

    Shannon, I hope that your daughter and her friend have an amazing time next month! They’ll be there just in time for the final moments of the 50th Anniversary Celebration. If you or your daughter have any further questions as she prepares for the vacation, please don’t hesitate to revisit us here at planDisney.

    Magic always,
