    Can I put cash or Disney gift cards on my magic band if I'm not staying with a Disney Resort?

    Hi Karen,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're always happy to help with questions about planning your next Walt Disney World vacation.

    Currently, only guests who are staying in a Walt Disney World resort can use the benefit of charging purchases using their MagicBands. If you have an active MagicBand from a previous stay at a Disney resort, or one you purchased, linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can still use it to access your tickets and FastPass+ reservations, just not for paying for purchases.

    Please let us know if we can help with anything else as you make get ready for your visit. It won't be long now!
