    How do I link my credit card as a family member to my magic band 2?

    Hi, Peggy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I often find myself wishing for the ease and convenience of a MagicBand in my everyday life. I wish I could use it to unlock my door, start my car, get into the gym and pay for my groceries! Unfortunately, the Magic only works at Walt Disney World Resort.

    In order to attach a payment method to your MagicBand, when you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, let the desk attendant know which credit card you’d like to link to your MagicBand. (You can also set it up if you use Online Check-In.) If you have multiple adults sharing the same reservation, you can also have different credit cards linked to each MagicBand. Keep in mind that you aren’t actually linking your credit card directly to the MagicBand--instead, it’s just the method of payment connected with your hotel reservation.

    Also keep in mind that this option is only available for Guests staying at an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel. While any Guest may purchase and use a MagicBand for Theme Park entry (with valid Theme Park ticket linked to their My Disney Experience account), FastPass+ redemption and/or connecting Disney PhotoPass photos to their My Disney Experience account, only Resort hotel Guests may use their MagicBand for purchases or Disney Dining Plan entitlement redemption.

    If you have any other questions about using your MagicBand, please let us know, Peggy! We’re more than happy to help.
