    Can you link your debit/credit card to your magic band if you are not staying at a Disney Resort?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Chelsey. I'm so glad you stopped by! It looks like you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days. You must be super excited! I know I would be.

     With seasonal events like the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and the Disney After Hours Boo Bash, you're sure to Fall into Magic this week. And I can't forget to mention that The World's Most Magical Celebration is happening right NOW! There's lots of new magic to discover in and out of the theme parks. 

     You ask an excellent question. You can't charge purchases to your MagicBand unless you're a Guest of the Disney Resorts Collection. If you're not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can use your MagicBand for entry into the theme parks and to link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account. Be sure to link your credit card to your My Disney Experience account, though, so that you can place mobile food and beverage orders quickly and easily. This handy feature has saved me lots of precious time!

     Have you heard about the Disney Genie Service? This brand-new feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app is about to debut. It's designed to optimize your time and maximize your fun. What could be better than that?

     I hope this was helpful, Chelsey. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
