    I've been selected for the magic bands. Do I have to link a credit card to them?

    Hi, Jessica!

    Great question!

    I called Walt Disney World on your behalf and was told that, just like in years' past with Key to the World accounts, Guests may choose whether or not they'd like to link a credit card. The only thing you'll lose by not linking a credit card to the account is the ability to charge purchases to your room. Some Guests prefer not to add charging privileges to their Key to the World Cards and MagicBands are no different.

    In short, you may do as you like, Jessica! Great to hear, isn't it?

    If you have a smartphone, be sure to download the free app My Disney Experience; together with your MagicBands, you'll be able to tour the parks with nothing more than the band on your wrist and your phone in your pocket. It's so cool!

    Happy planning! Be sure to send us more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
