    If we are not staying on property can we still use our magic bands for purchases throughout the parks?

    Hey there, hi there, Allison!

    Using my MagicBand to make purchases during our Disney vacation is so great! Not having to carry around a purse is a plus. 

    Currently, MagicBand charging privileges is only permitted for guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World resort. 

    If you are staying off property, your MagicBand can be used to enter each Walt Disney World theme park, FastPass+ selections, and your PhotoPass pictures. 

    When we stay off property, I usually use a Disney gift card to make all of our purchases. It helps me to stay on budget and I don't have to worry about carrying around my personal credit/debit card. If you choose to use a Disney Gift Card, be sure to register it on the Disney Gift Card website.

    Thanks for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Please stop by and visit with us again soon.
