    I'm not staying at a Disney world Resort, can I link my magic bands to a credit card to pay for purchase at the park? Or will I have to carry my credit card or cash on me at the parks.

    Hi, Amanda!

    While your MagicBand can be linked to your My Disney Experience account for your park tickets and FastPass+ reservations, you cannot store credit card or gift card information to charge with it. You may choose to pay for food, souvenirs, or any extras with cash, credit card, or gift card, or whatever method you feel will be the most convenient for you.

    As a guest staying off property, you can make your FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance. Each guest can choose up to three selections per day, with the option of additional "rolling FastPasses" that you can book after using all three of your original selections. Your rolling FastPasses can be reserved on your smart phone's Disney Parks app or at an in-park kiosk.

    While you will be charged for parking at any of the theme parks since you are staying off property, you only need to pay one time a day. If you choose to leave a park for a break or change theme parks, just show your dated receipt so you do not have to pay to park a second time.

    I hope you make lots of magical memories during your visit to Walt Disney World!
