    1) What if I don't stay at a Disney hotel, can I still link my credit card 2) Can I link a Disney gift or a Visa Pre-paid card to my boy's magic bands?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Josefina!

    MagicBands are such a great addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love the fact that my theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account are all just a touch of the wrist away. Plus, when you wear your MagicBand on certain attractions, exclusive videos of you enjoying the attraction will be automatically be loaded to your Memory Maker account! While Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel can make purchases using their MagicBand that are charged to their Disney Resort hotel room account, unfortunately Guests cannot link a credit card or Disney Gift Card directly to their MagicBand. So if you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to use your MagicBand for purchases during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.

    If you have any other questions you continue planning, please let us know! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
