    If I am not staying in a Disney hotel can I use my magic band to buy in the park? Can I link my magic band to my credit card?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mariana!

    MagicBands make a trip to Walt Disney World Resort so convenient! I love how it puts access to my admission tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account right at my wrist. While MagicBands will allow Walt Disney World Resort hotel Guests charging privileges, unfortunately day Guests, who are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, cannot attach a credit card to their MagicBands or use their MagicBand for purchases. In the past when I have visited as a day Guest, I simply carried a credit card with my identification in a wallet or small purse and I haven't had a problem.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
