    I know you cannot add your credit card to your magic band if your not staying on site. Is there any way we can add our credit card to my Disney experience or something so we don't have to carry our credit card around all day at the parks?

    Hi, Lisa!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It's a pleasure to help you once again!

    I also try to keep my backpack to its minimum weight when I'm visiting a Theme Park at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I understand the plan to minimize your wallet size!

    I'm happy to share that you'll be able to use a previously stored credit card for the Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering service. It's a real game-changer for those who want to maximize their time, and it will also help you keep that credit card safe in a pocket. 

    Many stores across the Walt Disney World Resort accept payments via Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Android Pay, so those are also useful resources to have on your phone. 

    Disney Gift Cards are also widely accepted, so you can manage your balance and use them daily at the Theme Parks and Disney Resort hotels. My husband and I usually do that to keep our budget under control, and they're very convenient for our Disney travels. For small purchases, like the occasional yummy snack, we usually carry small amounts of cash.

    By mixing all those payments methods, you'll undoubtedly be able to keep your credit card well hidden at the bottom of a backpack or even at your Disney Resort hotel!

    I hope those options help you plan your daily budget management at the Walt Disney World Resort, Lisa! As always, we will be here to help you with more details until your exciting February trip!

    May the magic be with you,
