    Can magic bands be linked to different credit cards, without staying at a Disney resort? Where do we go to take care of this?

    Hello Laura, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am thrilled to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon. I love the ease of using MagicBands during my vacations because it makes everything so convenient. There is no need to keep up with an admission or PhotoPass cards because MagicBands automatically access the information linked to your My Disney Experience accounts. Simply tap your MagicBand at the touch points at the entry to the park and at FastPass+ return lines. PhotoPass Photographers can also add photos to your account to a Memory Maker with just the tap of your band.

    Unfortunately, MagicBands cannot be linked directly to a credit or debit card. Guests of select Disney Resort Hotels can place a card on file during check-in. This will allow them to charge food and merchandise back to their room account which is linked to their MagicBand. The charges on this account are settled at check out time. Since you are not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will not have privileges to charge with your MagicBand. You can purchase MagicBands at many merchandise locations within the Walt Disney World Resort. You may even find some special event or limited edition MagicBands too. Have a wonderful time.

    See ya real soon,
