    I have old Magic bands from a previous stay. Still show as linked to my account. We are NOT staying at a Disney property this trip, can I link a credit card to my Magic band to make paying for things easier ??

    Hi Christopher!

    I'm excited to hear that you're getting ready for your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm happy to help you plan your visit!

    As you know, MagicBands are an awesome addition to a trip to the "Most Magical Place on Earth" because they will give you access to your theme park tickets and Lightning Lane reservations with just the touch of your MagicBand. Plus, you'll be able to use your MagicBands to add photos to your Disney PhotoPass account during your trip!

    Guests who are staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels can use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort that are charged to their hotel room accounts. Unfortunately, there's no way to directly link a credit card or Disney Gift Card to your MagicBand. So if you aren't staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels, then you won't be able to use your MagicBands for purchases during your upcoming visit.

    Christopher, have you downloaded the My Disney Experience mobile app? It's a great tool for your visit because it will give you access to Disney Genie's awesome tips, allow you to make Lightning Lane reservations, provide interactive maps for navigation information throughout the resort, and more. It puts vacation magic right at your fingertips!

    Come back to see us if we can help you with additional questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
