    Hi. I'm staying with my extended family at Copper Creek next month. I have everything set on MyExperience and my credit card is currently saved there. Do I have to do anything else so that I can charge using my MagicBand?

    Happy New Year, Janet! MagicBands have become quite the fashion accessory, but they also become your lifeline at Walt Disney World Resort, as they store your theme park tickets and FastPass+ information, open your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, pay for dining and merchandise, and connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account. I always enjoy not having to rummage around in my cluttered purse for credit cards or keys while I'm on vacation. 

    Your bands are set up with a PIN that you choose, so when you arrive on property and want to purchase an item, it's as simple as tapping your MagicBand and typing in your 4-digit code on the touchpad. This is especially convenient for my teens, who enjoy having time to tour the Parks on their own. If you haven't done so already, log in to your My Disney Experience account and click the blue 'My Profile' link under the 'My Account' section. Next, click 'Payment Method,' where you will see your saved credit card information. Scroll to the bottom of the screen for the instructions on how to set your PIN code (if you've previously visited Walt Disney World Resort, your code will already be stored).  I also suggest doing Online Check-in before your arrival so you can head directly to your room, skipping the Front Desk!

    I know you'll have a magical stay at the Copper Creek Villas & Cabins at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, Janet! This resort has worked it's way into my number one spot, and my family loved the homey and spacious accommodations (wait until you see the walk-in closet!).  Make time to relax with a libation or two at Geyser Point Bar & Grill, which sit on the water's edge of Bay Lake. The Huckleberry Punch pairs nicely with the Bison Cheeseburger!

Hi, I'm Eean from Pennsylvania!  I may have an unusual name, but my passion for Disney is not unique.  It’s amazing how many people you can find who love talking about, "The Most Magical Place On Earth!"  I'm that mom who always has her ears perked at PTO meetings, in the grocery store aisle, or at middle school basketball games waiting for an opportunity to give someone a planning tip to help make their vacation even more magical.
