    Hi, my DH and I will be going to Disney world for Christmas! We a Disney visa credit card and will have it linked to our magic bands, when we shop at the parks will know to automatically take 10% off or do we need to show the card? Thank you.

    Hi Michelle! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sure sounds like you are going to have a magical Christmas at the Walt Disney World Resort! I have always wanted to spend Christmas there. I imagine all of the cheer, the people, the smells, and the joy as people celebrate the season. I have heard however that it does tend to be very crowded during this time of year so I just want to remind you to plan ahead! If you are planning on having a sit down meal, plan on making a dining reservation. Also take advantage of FastPass+ to avoid some of the longer wait time’s at the most popular attractions!

    It has been my experience that even though you’re Disney Visa Credit Card will be linked to your Magic Band, you will still need to have the card with you when you are shopping. When I asked a Cast Member why, they said because there is no way for them to see the actual credit card that is linked to your account. So to be safe, if you’re planning on doing some major shopping, or even if you’re not (because even when you’re not planning on it, the shopping happens and adds up real quick, because…Disney) I would make sure to carry your Disney Visa Credit Card with you at all times to take advantage of that discount!

    Have a Magical Day and a wonderful Christmas!
