    We are traveling in 2020 and we are not staying at a Disney Resort. I would like to do the Magic Bands for the picture service and fast passes. I am wondering if I can link my credit card to it so that I can also make purchases with the band?

    Hi Brooke!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are just oh so much fun, aren’t they? I have to admit, when we returned from our most recent trip, I didn’t take my MagicBand off until the next day. Wouldn’t life be fun if everything worked with a MagicBand!

    Currently, MagicBands can only be used for charging purposes for Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. While you could certainly purchase MagicBands, or use ones you already have from a recent visit for park entry, FastPass+, and Memory Maker, you would not be able to link a credit card to it.

    In case you decide you’d like to consider staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, be sure to keep an eye on the Special Offers Page. You never know if a promotion might come up for your dates that might make a stay at Disney a good choice for you. Then you’d have the convenience of charging to your MagicBand, earlier access to FastPass+ selections and many other benefits exclusive for Disney Resort Hotel Guests.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your trip, Brooke. We are here to help!
