    1I will NOT be staying at a Disney hotel. Can I still use a magic band to charge food etc to my credit card? 2I know this is silly but I'm an adult going for the first time and I REALLY want to get pixie dusted. Will they do it or is it only for kids?

    Greetings and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kat!

    Congratulations on your first visit! You must be excited to plan your days at The Most Magical Place on Earth and we are happy to help you create memories you will cherish forever.

    I cannot imagine visiting “home” without MagicBands. Besides looking very cool and being a great souvenir from a Disney vacation, their features make visiting the Walt Disney World Resort much easier. At this time, only Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can enjoy all the functionalities of MagicBands, such as charging food and merchandise to their Guest room during their stay. You are still welcome to use a MagicBand to enter the theme parks with valid admission linked to your Disney account, check in at FastPass+ entrances, and link all digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass Service to My Disney Experience. Visit to check all the amazing designs and order one before your visit. You can also purchase a MagicBand upon arrival at several merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including World of Disney store at Disney Springs.

    As an adult who absolutely loves sparkles I fully support you on looking for that extra pixie-dust to make your visit more magical! That is why I recommend booking a haircut appointment at Harmony Barber Shop at Magic Kingdom Park to enjoy a proper pixie-dust ceremony! While this is offered primarily to Guests who have an appointment, you are also welcome to stop by and politely request it. Sometimes they are very busy and may not be able to accommodate your request, so if you must have your pixie-dust I highly recommend making an appointment as early as 180 days in advance by calling (407) 939-7529. I have already stopped by Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique locations with my daughter and the Fairy Godmothers-in-Training were sometimes able to sprinkle pixie-dust magic over us. Please note, however, that they may not be able to grant your wish if they are too busy assisting little Princesses and Princes.

    Thank you for sending your first question our way, Kat. I hope this helps you plan a pixie-dusted visit and please stop by once again real soon, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
