    Hi, we are going to Disneyworld the first week of March 2020 and are staying at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. I ordered Magic Bands and I know we can link our tickets and photo pass to them, but can I charge food/souvenirs to a linked credit card?

    Hi, Kristen! We're thrilled you found us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I've always loved the whimsical look of The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, which recently received a top to bottom refurbishment. The main reason many guests choose to stay here revolves around those three words:  location, location, location! 

    Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotels receive many of the same benefits associated with official Walt Disney World Resort hotels, including being able to reserve attractions through FastPass+ up to 60 days in advance and complimentary theme park transportation. Although you can link your Walt Disney World Theme Park Tickets, Fast Passes, and Disney's PhotoPass Service to your MagicBands, at this time for Swan and Dolphin guests, it does not allow in-park charging privileges. My Moms Panel friend, Amy S., recently wrote an answer about this, and she has purchased Disney Gift Cards as an alternative form of payment while in the Parks. 

    Last summer, my family and I dined at Il Mulino in the neighboring Swan Hotel. I found it to be a great place for a peaceful dinner, and the fresh pasta entrees were delicious! We followed this up with a highly competitive game of miniature golf at Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, conveniently located across the street. 

    I hope this helps you have a magical vacation, Kristen! See ya' real soon!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
