    If I have a linked/working MagicBand (w/tickets linked) for my stay off property, am I able to link my credit card to this band to make purchases in or on Disney properties?

    Hi Louis!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I think you will love using MagicBands for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort. It's so nice to be able to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the tap of your MagicBand! I love not having to hold my entire family's admission cards during a theme park day because it can be a pain to retrieve them and pass them out to each person for every FastPass+ reservation we want to use.

    Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel are able to use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort that will be applied to their room account. Unfortunately, there is no way to link a credit card, Disney Gift Card or cash directly to your MagicBand. So if you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you cannot use your MagicBand to make purchases.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App to use during your visit as it's the perfect way to manage all of your vacation plans during your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
