    I'm staying at the Shades of Green, can I link a credit card to my Magic Band?

    Hi Daniel,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Shades of Green is a truly beautiful resort that has the perfect relaxing vacation feel and a fantastic location - I love being able to walk to Disney's Polynesian Village Resort for a legendary Dole Whip.

    Because Shades of Green is not considered a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, room charging privileges to your MagicBand are not an option at this time. Guests at Shades of Green do not receive complimentary MagicBands; if you have one from a previous Disney vacation or are planning to purchase one, you will be able to use it for your theme park entry, FastPass+ access, and PhotoPass, but it will not act as a room key or allow room-charging privileges. I think it’s a great idea to bring a MagicBand anyway, as I think it just makes the vacation feel a little more “Disney,” but your ticket card will work just fine too.

    Disney recently extended their Extra Magic Hours benefit to Guests at Shades of Green, which is a great perk and one my family always takes advantage of. Shades of Green Guests are also now able to make their FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of their check-in date, so be sure to get your tickets linked to your reservation in My Disney Experience so you can be sure to secure those selections early.

    Daniel, whether it’s you or one of your family members, thank you for your service to our country. As a military spouse, I know how extra-special family vacations are for our military families, and I wish you and yours the absolute best time, filled with pixie dust and amazing memories.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
