    I would like to purchase magic bands for a party of eight. We are not staying on Disney property. How do we get our bands linked to accounts for easy access for food etc?

    Hi Deborah, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    MagicBands are a really convenient way to unlock the Magic at Walt Disney World Resort and link your Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ selections and Disney PhotoPass pictures together in a cute little package. If you aren’t staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, you can purchase your party’s MagicBands before your visit over at shopDisney. Alternatively, you can also purchase solid-coloured MagicBands at any ticket window when you arrive to start your fun.

    Please note that you can’t use your MagicBands to charge any purchases that you may choose to make during your Disney Day unless you’re staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. They don’t store your credit card information, but rather are a way to charge purchases to an existing hotel account. In addition, if you want to purchase a Disney Dining Plan, you’ll also need to have purchased a Disney Resort Hotel Package which means, you guessed it, you’ll need to stay “on property”. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and visit us if you have any other questions. We’re always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
