    How can I link my credit card to our bands before arrival?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Christine. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort tomorrow! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     You're going to love experiencing the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you stay IN the magic, even after leaving the theme parks!

     Let's get your credit card linked to your My Disney Experience account so you'll be all set for your arrival tomorrow. Start by logging in to your My Disney Experience account online. Hover over the My Disney Experience tab on the Walt Disney World Resort website and select "My Plans" from the drop-down menu that appears. Scroll down the page until you see your Disney Resort hotel listed. Click on the "Start Check-in" button that's just to the right of your hotel reservation information. There you can add credit card information for hotel account charges. You'll need to create a 4-digit PIN so that you can use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your Disney Resort hotel folio. Additionally, you can add contact information for messages during your stay, select your housekeeping preference, and even make room requests. If you complete the online check-in process before your arrival tomorrow, you can completely bypass the Front Desk and head straight to your room when it's ready for you!

     If you experience any difficulty getting your credit card information linked to your My Disney Experience account, not to fret. Simply stop by the Front Desk when you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel and a friendly Cast Member will gladly assist you!

     Your visit is the perfect time to experience The World's Most Magical Celebration. There's lots of new magic to be discovered in and out of the theme parks!

     I hope this was helpful, Christine. I'm wishing you a Disney vacation that is practically perfect in every way!
