    Can I make purchases from my magic band if I am not staying at a Disney hotel?

    Hi Rachel!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. I'm so excited to help you get ready for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation and it's going to be even more magical since you're planning on using MagicBands during your trip!

    MagicBands are an awesome addition to your visit to the "Most Magical Place on Earth" because you'll be able to use them to access your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account. Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel can use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort that are charged to their hotel room account. 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 a Disney Resort hotel, then you won't be able to use your MagicBand for purchases during your trip.

    Rachel, MagicBand+ recently debuted at Walt Disney World Resort and these new bands will allow you to interact with the theme parks in new and exciting ways. You'll become part of the show during nighttime spectaculars and you can earn credits as a Bounty Hunter when you visit Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. My family can't wait to try out this new technology during our next vacation and I'm sure it will make your trip extra special!

    Feel free to come back to see us if we can help you again as your vacation approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
