    Hi Camille!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It sounds like you are doing a fantastic job planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation! You will love using MagicBands during your trip because it adds so much convenience to your theme park days. It's so nice to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. I love that I don't have to carry everyone's admissions cards and hand them out throughout the day every time we use a FastPass+ reservation!

    Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel are able to use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort that are charged back to their hotel reservation. Unfortunately, Guests do not have the ability to link a credit card or Disney Gift Card directly to a MagicBand for charging. So since you are not staying at one of the official Disney Resort hotels, you will not be able to use your MagicBand for charging purchases. 

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App to use during your trip as it's a great way to manage all of your vacation reservations. Plus, the app will give you current wait times for all of the attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks! Let us know if you have any additional questions as you continue counting down the sleeps until your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
