    Hi! I read a blog and someone mentioned buying Disney Bucks for your kids to make purchases. What is that? Also I saw a reference to making purchases with your wristband. How do we do that? Can each band be linked to a debit card?

    Hey, Sandra!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Oh, the days of Disney Dollars have been cashed out, however, Guests who still collect or hold on to these keepsakes have a real piece of Disney history. Yes, they are still accepted as currency in the theme parks but sadly are no longer produced.

    MagicBands are another story. These amazing pieces of technology come in many colors with graphic designs and may even be customized with your name or favorite Disney Character. You may attach a credit card to your MagicBand ONLY if you are Guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. From there you may make purchases as easily as it is to "touch" your MagicBand to a Mickey touchpoint and enter your predesignated secret personal identification number (PIN).

    Disney Dad Tip: Anyone can use MagicBands for theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations. If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and you still want one then check them out at the Disney Store onlineShop Disney Parks Mobile App or purchase when you arrive.

    Please stop by with more questions to help make your Disney vacation special.

    Sandra, enjoy making many Magical Memories at Walt Disney World Resort.
