    Souvenirs and food is coming out of pocket so we want to pay as we go. I’m not understanding what room charges is, can purchases come off the card automatically and not be charged back to room ?? And what’s a good example of a room charge ??

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jazmin! We’re so glad you stopped by to bring us your question. 

    Jazmin, when you stay inside the magic at one of the wonderful resort hotels at the Walt Disney World resort, your stay comes with some added pixie dust! You’ll be able to enjoy complimentary transportation throughout the resort and round-trip to Orlando International Airport, Extra Magic Hours at the theme parks, complimentary MagicBands, and more! 

    MagicBands are a pixie-dusted wearable technology you will use during your stay that will essentially be your key to the Kingdom. They will act as your room key, theme park tickets, FastPass+, and payment method. You will be able to have a linked credit card to your account, so you can make purchase during your stay by tapping your MagicBand as your form of payment. No need to worry about bringing your wallet if you choose not to. These charges will all be billed through your room account, or folio. At the end of your visit your account will be billed any charges made with your MagicBand to your account. Simple, right?! 

    During your visit, when you shop and dine at the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs, you can simply use your MagicBand to pay and everything will go through your credit card on file. You can even track your charges right on your smart device with the My Disney Experience mobile app. I love how stress-free a magical vacation at Disney can be! 

    I hope this helps answer your question about room charges. If you have any additional questions about your upcoming visit to the most magical place on earth, please don’t hesitate to stop by and bring those our way! 

    Wishing you a pixie-dusted day,
