    If I'm not staying at a Disney hotel, and I don't have annual pass, can I still link my credit card to a MagicBand for quick and easy purchases in the parks?

    Hi Kate!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for paying us a magical visit.  MagicBands are awesome and definitely add to the ease and convenience of a Walt Disney World vacation. Unfortunately, at this point in time, only Guests staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels are capable of adding charging privileges to their MagicBands.  (The credit card is actually linked directly to the resort reservation and not just to the MagicBand.)  I'd love to see that be an option someday as the technology progresses, but it's just not an option yet.

    I wish you a wonderful vacation, Kate, and please let us know if there is anything else we may assist you with.

    Pixie Dust.
