    Can I use the magicband for buying things at parks if not staying at a Disney hotel?

    Hello Nichole, and welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands and the new MagicBand+ are some fantastic pieces of technology, and I am always excited to get mine for almost every visit to Walt Disney World Resort

    Making purchases with the MagicBand is an excellent benefit because it allows you to keep a payment card on file at your Disney Resort Hotel so that you can buy the items you wish during your stay. As a Disney Resort guest, you would be able to link a credit card to your account to facilitate the buying power. However, if you are not a Disney Resort guest, you are unable to use MagicBands to make purchases. 

    Please return if you have additional questions; we are here if you need us. 

    Have a magical time!
