    If we are staying at the Walt Disney World Swan, I know magic bands don't work there. Can we purchase magic bands to link our tickets and link a cc to make purchases at the parks?

    Hey there, Melissa!

    Your trip is right around the corner! How excited you must be. 

    You can absolutely purchase a MagicBand to use during your upcoming Disney vacation. You can purchase one from the Shop Disney website or mobile app. Since your trip is just around the corner, I would suggest purchasing your MagicBand once you arrive at Walt Disney from any retail location on property. If the Swan or Dolphin hotels don't have MagicBands on property, you can walk over to Disney's Boardwalk Resort or Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resorts, and inside all of the theme parks. 
    Currently, The Swan and Dolphin don't allow for guests to link a credit card to your MagicBand. However, your MagicBand will have your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and PhotoPass pictures. If you have trouble linking your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account, just ask the nearest Cast Member to assist you. They'll be more than happy to get it linked.

    Melissa, if you have more questions, please stop by and visit with us again soon!
