    I’m going with family and staying with them in a Disney world resort room. They are paying for my stay and admission to the parks. I have a magic band but do not want to link a credit card to it. I have gift cards and cash for my food and things. Do you it

    Hi there and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up in just a couple of days!  I'm sure you're in your final planning and packing stages and can't wait to officially start your vacation.

    MagicBands add an extra convenience to any Walt Disney World vacation.  You can use them to enter the theme parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, open your Disney Resort hotel room door and make purchases for merchandise and Disney dining.  You do not have to use your MagicBand for payments and can use your gift cards and cash to pay for your purchases as you go instead.  If you do want to charge to your MagicBand, you can pay off your charges at the front desk of your hotel with your preferred method of payment. 

    I love to take advantage of Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering in the My Disney Experience Mobile App.  This allows you to skip the line and order drinks, snack and meals at select quick service restaurants and just head over to pick it up when it's ready.  You can also use Merchandise Mobile Checkout in select gift shops to easily purchase any souvenirs you would like to take home with you.  You can use your Disney Gift Cards as payment in the app, which makes it even easier!  

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
