    Online check in I'm traveling from overseas and have paid for my accommodation and park tickets. I'm up to to the online check in page where I nominate a bank card. Can I use my magic band for purchases then pay at the resort with cash?

    Hi, Tamara!

    Welcome to Walt Disney World! If you plan to charge back to your room using your MagicBand, you will need to have a credit card on file. Upon arrival, stop by the front desk of your resort. Tell a Cast Member you would like to pay off your balance with cash, and ask how often you should stop by to pay down your balance to avoid your credit card getting charged. 

    Plan to stop by the lobby every evening or two, and have your cash ready. A friendly Cast Member will be happy to pull up your account and use the cash for to cover your room charges. 

    Having a MagicBand is so convenient! I love that with a quick "tap" of my band I can enter my resort hotel room, enter a theme park, and even charge back to my room. I just wish it worked when I got back home for use at the grocery store and to unlock my house!

    The wonderful Cast Members will be happy to help with any questions, so stop by to get information or just to say "Hi" to these great folks! Enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
