    Hello, Do I have to have Venmo connected to my magic band? Or can I just connect my American express credit card to it? Thank you

    Hi Kenzie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Thank you for bringing a great question to our website. We appreciate your trust!

    The ability to connect a credit card to my MagicBand is one of my favorite features and I bet you will love it, too. I'm happy to tell you that you can connect an American Express card to your MagicBand at check in and it will work just fine. My husband and I had our American Express connected to our own MagicBands on our honeymoon and it worked smoothly.

    We used them to shop at Disney Springs, to enjoy snacks at the Theme Parks (the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich served at the Sleepy Hollow at Magic Kingdom Park is heavenly) and to pay for our daily expenses at restaurants.

    Kenzie, I hope you have the time of your life with your MagicBand at the Walt Disney World Resort. If any other questions about your dining reservations, FastPass+ selections or your Disney Hotel pop up, please, come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It is always a pleasure to assist a kind Guest like you!

    May the magic be with you,
