    Sarah from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    If I am staying at the Dolphin Resort, can I link my MagicBand to my credit card to pay for my in-park purchases?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Sarah!

    You must be excited to arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth tomorrow! As you prepare for your arrival, remember to check the latest updates regarding the phased reopening of the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Only Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel can enjoy all the functionalities MagicBands offer, such as charging food and merchandise purchases to their Guest room during their stay. Visitors staying at hotels that are not owned by Disney, like Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, are currently welcome to use MagicBands to enter the theme parks with valid admission added to their Disney account, and link all digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass Service to My Disney Experience. Please note that if the MagicBand you currently have is older than 2 years, the batteries inside may not be working anymore. If you are unable to use it, you can stop by merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort to purchase a new one. 

    planDisney tip: With the recommendation that Guests use cashless transactions during their visit, I hope you are able to explore enhancements that have been made to technology available via the My Disney Experience mobile app. One of my favorite features is Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, which allows you to order ahead at participating locations and pick up your order during a designated arrival window. 

    Thank you for sending your question our way, Sarah. I hope you have a magical time ringing in the New Year at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
