    I am a hotel guest. My brothers card is connected to my magic band as a resort hotel pin, but I want to use my card on my magic band. How does that work? Can I charge to my own card or will it automatically charge his?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Brooke! It won't be long before the sight of Cinderella Castle has you swept away into a world of magic and wonder. 

    As you are planning for the big adventure, it is helpful to know each person can use their own form of payment to make purchases at Walt Disney World Resort with their MagicBand. When you check into your resort, simply ask a Cast Member at the front desk to set up your MagicBand+ with your credit card and PIN. 

    You can also use the My Disney Experience App for Mobile Food Orders and Merchandise Mobile Checkout at so many locations throughout the parks and resorts. Both of these features are convenient for skipping the lines. It is also another great option to use your preferred form of payment through the app. Purchases made through My Disney Experience go to the credit card on your account or you can enter a different credit card, Disney gift card or Disney Visa Rewards card. These are paid when you make the purchase and do not go to the resort bill.

    One of my favorite stops for planning is Disney Parks Blog. Lucky you, you are arriving just in time for delicious treats at the end of the rainbow

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions. We are here for you!

    I hope your trip is sprinkled with Pixie Dust and a little bit of leprechaun charm!
