    Can I put a credit card or cash on a magic band if I am not saying at the resort so we can avoid bring our wallet etc to park

    Hi Amy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are an awesome addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they will help make your day so easy! It is so nice to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your wrist! If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then you will be able to use your MagicBand to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort, which are then charged to your Disney Resort hotel room account. You can pay your account via credit card or Disney Gift Card by visiting your Disney Resort hotel's front desk. Unfortunately, Guests cannot directly link cash, credit cards or Disney Gift Cards to their MagicBand.

    One good alternative for using cash during your trip is to purchase Disney Gift Cards to use during your trip. While you may have to carry them separately from your MagicBand, it is a nice way to minimize what you are carrying during your day. Plus, you can register your card, which will allow you to view your balance, reload your balance, and transfer balances between cards. For my theme park days, I like to always bring a credit card, a Disney Gift card or cash and my identification with me, just in case.

    Please let us know if you have any questions as you continue planning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
