    How do I link a credit card to my magic bands?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sam!

    MagicBands are the niftiest Walt Disney World vacation accessories!  They are such a convenient way to access theme park admission, FastPass+ reservations, and to link Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account.

    Guests who will be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel may also use their MagicBands to unlock their hotel room door and to charge purchases to their room folio, which are then billed to the credit card on file.  

    You can set this up at the front desk of your Disney Resort Hotel upon arrival, or you can set it up yourself using the Online Check-In feature on the My Disney Experience website or mobile app.  When logged in to your account in My Disney Experience, you'll see your Resort Hotel reservation listed in "My Plans" or on the home screen of the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Select "Start Check-In", or if you have already completed the online check-in process, you may select "Modify Your Check-In" or "Update Check-In".  You should see a field for "Hotel Account Charges" where you can enter or update your credit card information.  You will also need to set the "Hotel Account PIN" that you will use when charging purchases to your room account.

    At this time, Guests without a reservation at a Disney Resort Hotel may not use their MagicBands to make purchases.  However, all Guests are welcome to store a payment method to their My Disney Experience account which can then be used for in-app purchases and Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
