    If I am staying off property can I link a credit card to my magic band for purchases?

    Hey Joanna! Welcome to planDisney.

    Thank you for sending us your fantastic question about MagicBands! I love how convenient MagicBands make it to unlock my Disney Resort hotel room door, access my vacation funds, enter Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, and connect my Disney PhotoPass photos to my account while traveling “the World.”

    If you are not staying in a Disney Resort hotel, you will not be able to link a credit card to your MagicBand for completing purchases while visiting Walt Disney World. At the current time, these charging privileges are exclusive to Disney Resort hotel Guests

    However, you will still be able to use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks and claim your Disney PhotoPass photos. Even when I’m not staying on property, I use my MagicBand. I love not having to pull anything out of my bags when entering the theme parks or while capturing precious memories with my family!

    Joanna, don’t forget to download the My Disney Experience app in advance of your vacation. The My Disney Experience app will allow you to make changes to your plans, create Disney Park Pass reservations, complete Mobile Orders for food and beverage, and so much more — all while “on the go!”

    If you have any additional questions, you please visit planDisney again. We are always here to help plan the “practically perfect” Walt Disney World vacation!

    With Lots of Pixie Dust,
