    Hi! Can I use my magic band to pay at Disney springs without staying in a resort? I visit a lot and don’t always want to carry my debit card. Thanks!

    Heigh-Ho Annabeth,

    Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney. With all of the shopping, entertainment and food & beverage options at Disney Springs, I can understand the frequent visits to Disney Springs

    Currently, only Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are able to charge on their MagicBand. Everyone, else, staying or visiting around the Walt Disney World area will use the typical forms of payment. Many, including myself, use the contactless method offered on our phones such as Apple Pay which is readily accepted all around the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have an iPhone simply open the Wallet app and follow the instructions to link your card. Even better if you have an Apple Watch you can access this contactless feature through it as well.

    Many exciting events and celebrations are coming to Walt Disney World and the Disney Parks Blog is a great place to stay updated. For any further curiouser and curiouser inquiries feel free to ask and check out our Instagram (@planDisneypanel) for more Disney Magic. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.
