    I am going to be staying at an official Disney Hotel (not a Disney resort hotel) during my park visit. Will I be able to link a credit card to my magic bands?

    Hi Laura,

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy to see you here today. I'm excited to hear you already have accommodations secured for your visit,  as planning is just another part of the fun.

    I'm not sure exactly where you'll be staying, but unfortunately, only hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection will allow guests to charge purchases to their room using a MagicBand or MagicBand+. While you'll find convenient accommodations at partner hotels and Official Walt Disney World Hotels in the Disney Springs area, you won't have all the benefits of your MagicBand during your stay.

    Unlocking my hotel room door and making purchases with my MagicBand+ were two things I missed on my last stay at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, but I was glad to be in close walking distance to EPCOT and still take advantage of purchasing Individual Lightning Lanes at 7 a.m. as a guest of the hotel. You'll be able to review all eligible benefits and amenities of your particular resort online, or by visiting the front desk when you arrive.

    If you plan to utilize Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering during your visit, I'm happy to share that you can link a credit card in your My Disney Experience App for faster checkout. You'll also be able to use a linked credit card within your app for Merchandise Mobile Checkout as well. I love using both time-saving features during my visits to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Laura, if you have any other questions or need some personalized recommendations for your trip please don't hesitate to come back and let us know. We're always glad to help.

    Magic and memories,
