    If I am staying at the dolphin hotel can I add a pin to charge things on my magicband?

    Hi Nicole!

    The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel will be a fantastic vacation "home" for your trip! This beautiful resort is in a fantastic location because you are just a short walk or boat ride away from both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Plus, since the hotel is located along Disney's BoardWalk, you'll be able to enjoy all of the dining and entertainment that the area has to offer!

    MagicBands are a great addition to a trip to Walt Disney World Resort because they will allow you to access your theme park tickets, Lightning Lane reservations, and Disney PhotoPass account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Guests staying at the Disney Resort hotels can use their MagicBands to make purchases that are charged to their hotel room accounts. Unfortunately, despite its convenient location, the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel isn't one of the official Disney Resort hotels, which means you won't be able to use your MagicBands for your purchases during your trip.

    Since you won't be able to use your MagicBands for your purchases, you may want to consider using Disney Gift Cards during your trip. I like to use Disney Gift Cards for many of our purchases during our visits and it's nice to pay for many of our vacation expenses in advance of our trip. Plus, I give my kids Disney Gift Cards so they can learn to manage their souvenEAR budgets!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as your trip approaches. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
