    Hello! My family is going to Disney in April and I had a question about the Magic bands. we are NOT staying on site - but I was wondering if we got a Magic Band could we link a credit card to it? It says you can charge purchases to your room, but not a CC?

    Hi Brittany!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited to help you get ready for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You are just a few sleeps away, so I'm sure you are counting down! MagicBands are an awesome addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they will give you access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your wrist. While Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can use their MagicBand to make charges to their Disney Resort hotel room account, unfortunately Guests cannot directly link a credit card to a MagicBand. So if you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to use your MagicBand to make purchases at Walt Disney World Resort during your vacation.

    Be sure to take a look at the awesome graphic MagicBands that you can choose from when purchasing them for your vacation either online or at the merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue planning your vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
