    Is it possible to link a credit card to my magic band before checking into the resort or do you physically need the card at the hotel

    Hi Karen! Welcome to planDisney!

    Before you know it, you'll be arriving for your stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel! My excitement levels are always at an all-time high when I pull into the parking lot of my Disney Resort hotel. That's when vacation officially begins. You will love it!

    I'm happy to tell you that, yes, you can put your credit card on file before you arrive. You will need to complete Online Check-In and can do so on the main Walt Disney World website or My Disney Experience mobile app. As part of the Online Check-In process, you'll have the chance to add a card for "Hotel Account Charges" by either adding it manually or scanning the card.

    You can also bring the card to the Front Desk and have the Cast Member put your card on file if you can't complete Online Check-In for any reason. You will find that making purchases with your MagicBand is super easy and convenient. It is one of the best things about staying in a Disney Resort hotel!

    I hope you have the BEST vacation, Karen! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Hello all! I'm a happily married, proud mom to two young children, and I love to plan trips to Walt Disney World Resort. One of my favorite things about taking a Disney Parks vacation is that there is always something new and wonderful to discover, no matter if this is your first trip or if you visit multiple times per year. I'm excited to help you plan your next adventure!
