    I will be staying at the Grand Floridian Villas in July with extended family. Are we able to link our Magic Bands to different credit cards so that each family can pay for their own "extras"?

    Hi Amy,

    Thank you so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. A stay at The Villas at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa sounds wonderful! I love the Victorian elegance of this resort, and the location so near to Magic Kingdom is fabulous.

    Disney MagicBands are a fantastic tool for your vacation. They can unlock your villa, allow access to theme parks once you have associated valid theme park admission, hold your Disney FastPass+ reservations, and so much more! As you know, you can also link a credit card to your MagicBand and use this for purchases around Walt Disney World.

    I have great news for you. You can link different credit cards to different MagicBands of guests staying in the same villa. I did this recently when traveling with another family and staying in a Treehouse Villa at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa. We linked my family's MagicBands to our credit card, and the other family staying with us linked to one of their credit cards. It was simple! You will need to do this in person at your resort. I think that the easiest time to do this is at check-in so that your whole party can get your MagicBands set up early, and they will be ready to use for the rest of your vacation.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Amy! Have a great time planning your magical vacation, and please do let us know if you have any further questions.
