    Looking to connect my MagicBand with a credit card, if this is possible? Thanks

    Hi Craig! Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh my goodness! Your vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth begins tomorrow! How excited are you right now? Before you know it, all your planning will pay off when you are immersed in the Disney details that make a Walt Disney World Resort vacation magical. I'm thrilled for you!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, your MagicBand will be linked to your hotel account and you will put a credit card on file for charging purposes. You can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to keep up with your MagicBand charges by viewing your hotel charges. It is super convenient!

    If you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to use your MagicBand to make purchases. Since MagicBands can't be linked directly to a credit card, only a hotel account, there isn't a way for Guests not staying on Walt Disney World property to use their MagicBand this way. If you are trying to avoid carrying around cash or credit cards with you, I recommend using a Disney gift card instead. They make sticking to a budget so much easier!

    I hope this helps, Craig! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hello all! I'm a happily married, proud mom to two young children, and I love to plan trips to Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorite things about taking a Disney Parks vacation is that there is always something new and wonderful to discover, no matter if this is your first trip or if you visit multiple times per year. I'm excited to help you plan your next adventure!
