    If I am not staying at a Disney Resort and just have Magic Bands linked to my visits to the parks can I also link them to a Major Credit Card.

    Hey Ernest!

    A warm welcome to planDisney. Thank you for sending me your wondEARful question about MagicBands. I am thrilled to help you plan your visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    Ernest, at the present time, only Guests who are staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels can use MagicBands to make purchases with a major credit card. Purchases made with MagicBands are charged to the Guest’s hotel room folio, which means that Guests not staying on property cannot make purchases with their MagicBands.

    However, you can use your MagicBand to enter the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks and link Disney PhotoPass photographs and videos to your My Disney Experience account!

    Ernest, if you plan on visiting during the phased reopening of Walt Disney World Resort, I highly encourage you to bookmark the experience updates page. This page is chock-full of information and updates on face coverings, contactless payment options, physical distancing protocols, and Disney Park Pass theme park reservations.

    Speaking of theme park reservations, if you haven’t already made yours, please do so as soon as possible! Theme park reservations are limited and subject to availability.

    If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to send them my way. I am always hEAR to help you plan the “practically perfect” Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
