    Can I link a debit/credit card to my magic band, if I am not staying at a Disney Resort.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy.

    I’m thrilled you’ll be visiting Walt Disney World Resort and utilizing a MagicBand which, unfortunately, you cannot associate any forms of payment to, unless you stay at a Disney Resort hotel. You will still be able to:
    - Enter the Disney Theme and Water Parks with valid admission.
    - Perform FastPass+ Planning and check in at FastPass+ entrances.
    - Connect Disney PhotoPass® images to your Disney account.
    - Unlock special personalized surprises during your vacation.

    Amy, you can purchase your MagicBand online, from the Shop Disney Parks app, or at many Disney Resort retail locations. If staying at a Disney Resort hotel, MagicBands are complimentary as one of many Disney Resort hotel Guest benefits.

    Be sure to link your MagicBand to your Disney account where you can begin your FastPass+ Planning 30 days in advance of your scheduled visit staying off Disney property, or 60 days before your Disney Resort hotel stay.

    We hope this information is helpful and would be honored to assist you with your Disney Vacation soon!
