    If stayinat swan & dolphin, link a credit card to magic band, use magic band to pay for purchases at the park including food/restaurants, will those purchases be added to my room bill? so I could then use my Disney gift card to pay at the end?

    Hey Connie and welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by with this wonderful question because we have made the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels our home many times over the years. Actually, my very first memory of Walt Disney World Resort is sailing on a FriendShip boat on Crescent Lake and seeing the giant stone statues on top of these hotels.

    The ability to use a MagicBand to charge to a Resort Folio is exclusively reserved for Guests staying at Disney Resort Hotels. This is one of the many benefits of staying on property and while the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin hotels (and the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve hotel) are all within the 43 square miles of Walt Disney World Resort property they are managed by Marriott International, Inc. 

    Fortunately, you are still able to use Disney Gift Cards to pay for items within the parks and can even use them with Mobile Food and Beverage ordering as well as Merchandise Mobile Ordering. This will help keep you within budget and prevent you from pulling out your credit card. Remember to register your gift cards online and consolidate gift cards so you have the maximum amount on each card up to $1000 (subject to change). Always have one registered that is blank. This way if you lose a Disney Gift Card you can transfer the balance quickly to the blank card.

    planDisney Pro Tip: October truly is a perfect time to visit Walt Disney World Resort especially EPCOT. Be sure to travel around the world case enjoy The EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival where you can taste culinary delights from around the world and listen to music from the Eat to the Beat concert series. Also, check out Pluto's Pumpkin Pursuit with a special prize after each game.

    Connie, I know you'll have an enchanted adventure this October. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
