    Can I make purchases on my Magic Band and use it as a room key if I am staying at the DS hotel, Wyndham Lake Buena Vista? We have bands from a previous WDW visit and wanted to be able to use them again. I see where I can add my tickets to the bands.

    Hi Tracy,

    Thanks so much for your question! I love that you are planning to reuse your MagicBands. They are so convenient!

    To use a MagicBand as a room key or to make purchases, you must be staying in a Disney Resort Hotel. That said, if you are staying at a non-Disney Resort, you may still use your MagicBands for park admission, check-in at FastPass+ locations and to connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account, so they are definitely worth bringing!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Tracy. Please let us know if we can help with any other questions as you plan.

    Have a pixie-dusted day!
