    If I put my credit card on my magic band, will I need to bring money for anything? For example, do ice cream surrey vendors have the readers for mb? It would be nice not to have to carry my wallet, especially at water parks.

    Hi Mike,

    I rarely carry cash in the parks and with the MagicBands, Disney has made purchasing food or merchandise even more convenient. You'll want to have cash on hand to purchase the light-up accessories on the parade routes sold by street vendors, but otherwise, the majority offer touch-to-pay options. We visited Blizzard Beach Water Park last week and used our MagicBand exclusively. 

    I hope this helped, Mike. Let me know if you have any other questions.
