    Hello! I have some questions about planning during COVID - Can we link a credit card to our magic band if staying off site? - Can we visit Disney Resort Hotels if we are not staying there during COVID? Can we enter to pick up mobile order?

    Heigh-Ho Michaela, 

    Welcome to planDisney, we are here to help with your curiouser and curiouser inquiries as your prepare for your Walt Disney World vacation

    Only Guests staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel have charging privileges on their MagicBand. Guests staying at an off-site hotel will need to bring other forms of payment when making purchases. Many changes are coming with the Disney MagicMobile service so stay tuned by following the Disney Parks Blog. 

    As Walt Disney World continues to monitor and maintain a healthy and safe environment, for all Guests and Cast Members, many Disney Resort Collection Hotels are not allowing off-site Guests to drive in and pick up mobile-food orders. Just recently, a former planDisney Panelist put in a mobile-food order, and when driving through the front gate, to pick up her order, was informed by the Cast Member that in the near future Resort will be implementing no off-site drive in mobile-food order pickups. However, IF you are on Walt Disney World property and using Disney transportation, Guests are able to visit a Disney Resorts Collection hotel and enjoy mobile-food order options as well as meander around the Resort. And just to be clear, if you have a table-service dining reservation off-site Guests are permitted through the front gates after showing their reservation confirmation.

    I do hope this helps Michaela and if we can be of any further assistance feel free to ask us at planDisney. In the meantime follow our Instagram (@plandisneypanel) for more Disney Magic and may your upcoming stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

Meet the Panelist: Amy, Virginia

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
