    Hey Moms! For MVMCP, can you use magic bands to make purchases - food and merchandise or does that have to be paid for in cash? Anything in those categories I should focus on? Thank you and I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi Angela,

    Oh, I'm SUPER excited to hear that you'll be experiencing Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party soon! It's my very favorite special event of the entire year! I mean, does it get much better than low wait times for your favorite Magic Kingdom Park attractions, unique character greeting opportunities, snow on Main Street U.S.A., special holiday shows, Holiday Wishes fireworks, and my very favorite part of the entire evening, Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade? SO much fun!

    I always like to keep at least a little bit of cash on me, but I'm happy to let you know that yes, as long as you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel and have set up your MagicBand to have charging privileges with a PIN number, you'll be able to use it during the party to make purchases at the restaurants and retail locations that have MagicBand scanning capabilities. Have you seen the recent Disney Parks Blog articles sharing some of the exclusive merchandise and scrumptious holiday treats available during the party? With so many incredible offerings, how will we ever decide?! Don't forget that there are lots of delicious, complimentary treats available to party Guests, too! Mmm...

    Thanks so much for visiting us a the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Angela, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your visit. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation filled with lots of holiday joy!
