    Can you link a debit/credit card to your magic band if you're not staying at the hotels?

    Hey, Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney! 

    Thanks for bringing your great question to us. I simply LOVE to use my MagicBand at the Walt Disney World Resort. I love using it the enter the Theme Parks, redeem my FastPass+ reservations, and unlock my room doors. 

    Some MagicBand privileges, though, are reserved for Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels, such as opening Disney Resort hotel room doors and charging purchases to your account. That's another cool incentive to book a room at the whimsical hotels inside the Walt Disney World Resort, isn't it?

    I also love these hotels because of their theming. Whenever I'm staying inside the Walt Disney World Resort, I always feel like I'm continually experiencing some sort of themed experience, which makes me enjoy my vacation days a lot more. You can't beat a nighttime walk through the grounds at Disney's Polynesian Villas & Bungalows, for example. That place is magical! 

    I just adore the feeling of walking through a manicured garden carefully illuminated for a dramatic look, and softly surrounded by sweet Disney tunes. I hope that you can experience a Disney Resort hotel in the future, dear Jennifer! 

    While you won't be able to charge purchases to your MagicBand, you will be able to add a Disney Gift Card to your My Disney Experience app so that you can pay for your mobile orders at Quick-Service locations. This handy feature is a great resource that will save you some time and help you with budgeting. How does it sound?

    I hope you have the most beautiful days at the Walt Disney World Resort this October, Jennifer! If you have more questions before then, please let us know. Your planDisney crew is always here to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
