    How do I put money on my magic bands so I don't have to carry my money or card into the parks during my vacation

    Hi Nylene!

    Having MagicBands makes vacationing at Walt Disney World so much easier.  They can be used to open your Disney Resort room door, access the FastPass+ attraction queues and even to pay for merchandise and dining all throughout the parks, Resort hotels and Disney Springs!  There is no need to carry cash or credit cards with you. 

    To use your MagicBand for charging, you will need to put down a credit card guarantee on your room account at the front desk or you can do this during the Online Check-In process.  You can then charge purchases you make during your vacation to your MagicBand, which go directly to your Disney Resort hotel room account.  The credit card you gave will be charged for your purchases automatically or you can visit the front desk if you'd like to pay your room account using an alternative method like cash or gift cards.  It's that easy!

    I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app before you leave home and play around with it to get familiar with what you can do.  Once you are on vacation, you can view your room charge balance right from the mobile app, view the bus schedule from your Disney Resort hotel, check park hours, attraction wait times, make or modify FastPass+ reservations, make or modify dining reservations and so much more.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
