    Can i link a debit card to my magic band for Disney purchases if i am staying off site for my visit

    Hiya, Samantha! Thanks for bringing this great question to planDisney.

    MagicBands are my favorite Mouseketools to add to my Walt Disney World Resort vacations! A little like having a magic wand that you wear, Guests will be able to enter the parks, access Lightning Lane entrances, and collect Disney PhotoPass photos with just the tap of a MagicBand. It really does feel like magic!

    Samantha, Guests that are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel can also use their MagicBand to make purchases and charge back to their room. With that being said, it's important to know that Guests staying off-site will not be able to have the same charging capabilities. I'm so sorry, Samantha – I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for. However, you may still choose to include this magical accessory on your upcoming vacation! For example, if you purchase a MagicBand+, you will have some additional features available to you – such as lighting up during nighttime spectaculars or helping you to locate virtual bounties (with the Play Disney Parks app) in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge

    To make the most out of your magical vacation, I'd suggest that you also take a little time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app. This app will allow you to check wait times for attractions, access virtual queues, and even mobile order food – my favorite! This is the best way to minimize waits and maximize the fun. And if you have any more questions, please write to us again!
