    Hello, I am travelling on the Disney Magic in May and wanted to ask what is an onboard account? Can i load money on there to then use whilst onboard? Or do we have to pay for everything with a credit card? How much money can i load onto the onboard account

    Hello there Nazneen, and welcome to planDisney!  I am so happy to answer your questions about the Onboard Account.

    Once you embark on the Disney Magic, you will use your Key to the World Card or DisneyBand+ (available for purchase) to make purchases (in US Dollars) on board.  You can leave your wallet in the safe in your stateroom!  These purchases will go to your Onboard Account which is linked to the method of payment you will select during Online Check-in.  You can use a credit card, Disney Gift Card, or cash for your Onboard Account.  If you use cash, you must go to Guest Services located on Deck 3 Midship of the Disney Magic after you embark to provide the cash.  The amount will be up to you. 

    While there are many things that are included in your cruise fare, Port Adventures, alcoholic and specialty beverages, and purchases in one of the shops, such as Mickey's Mainsail, are a few of the things that will be charged to your Onboard Account.   There are also items available for purchase on Disney Castaway Cay, and they will also be charged to your Onboard Account.  You will be able to view all charges within the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app so you can keep track of spending.

    Nazneen, your a magical vacation onboard Disney Cruise Line is just around the riverbend!  If you have any other questions, sail back to planDisney for help.

    Adventure is out there!
