    If we are not staying at a hotel that come with a MagicBand (Swan) but we purchase Magic Bands will we still be able to use them for purchases in the park?

    Greetings, Jennifer, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, we thank you for this excellent question!

    You are welcome to purchase your MagicBands through our Shop Disney Parks app, through the Disney Store online, or, onsite at Disney’s Cabanas in the Walt Disney World Swan. Then, link your valid Theme Park Tickets and MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account to begin your planning.

    Jennifer, at this time, Guests at Walt Disney World Swan, or Walt Disney World Dolphin do not have Disney Theme Park charging privileges, I’m sorry. Please take a look at a list of over 25 Disney Resort hotels that do offer Theme Park charging privileges, along with many other unique benefits.

    Did you know that you’re a Friendship Boat ride, or quick walk away from our delightful Disney’s BoardWalk? Stroll along an Atlantic City-style boardwalk promenade and enjoy many delicious treats, restaurants and entertainment.

    We hope this information is helpful, Jennifer, and we wish you a most magical Disney vacation.
