    We are staying at a Disney property only 1 day, but have a 4-day park pass. Can we still use our magic bands linked to our credit card for meal and souvenir purchases the other three days or only during our hotel stay?

    Hi, Amanda! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Using a MagicBand to pay for your incidentals is such a convenient way to vacation at Walt Disney World® Resort! Absolutely everything to make your visit magical is accessible with your MagicBand; theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, PhotoPass photos, your room key, and even the ability to pay for dining and merchandise. 

    However, your MagicBand will only be activated for charging until midnight of the day you check-out of your Walt Disney World® Resort hotel - the payment function will auto-magically deactivate when you are no longer a guest of the resort, as the resort hotels are the "department" that process all payments made with MagicBands. The good news is, you will still be able to use your MagicBands to enter the theme parks and for your FastPass+ reservations. You can also select the highlighted link above for more information on the features of the most magical band on earth. 

    Also, if you have a smartphone, don't forget to download the My Disney Experience App. With the app, you will be able to check wait times, get directions, and even secure additional FastPass+ reservations once you've utilized your first three selections. It's another great tool available to help you maximize your vacation. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Amanda! Please do not hesitate to reach back out to me with any additional questions you may have.
