    Hi Moms panel, We will be coming back to WDW in December. It will be our first time using the magic bands. We plan to charge our purchases via the magic bands. Is there any shops in WDW or in Disney Downtown that do not use the magic band payment method?

    Hi Terry,

    I never say never, but I haven't recently encountered any venue that doesn't accept the MagicBands as payment. In fact, even the drink and snack kiosks throughout the parks generally have MagicBand readers. That said, I always carry a little cash, just in case I'm desperate for a Diet Coke or Mickey Bar and happen upon the one spot without a reader.

    On a recent weekend trip for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, my husband and I realized when we arrived that we only had $8 in cash between us. We headed home two days later with our $8.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Please let me know if I can help in any other way as you plan your December visit. Enjoy!
