    Andrea Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Can we upgrade our Disney Tickets or link them to Magic Bands (put credit on them) even if we are not staying at a Disney Resort? We are staying in a Villa off site?


    Hey there, hi there, ho there and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are the theme park technology of the future and it was “all started by a mouse.” MagicBands are fun, convenient, wearable technology designed to make your life easy while at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Only MagicBands for Guests of Walt Disney World Resort hotels may have the benefit to associate a credit card for charging at merchandise locations and restaurants. Off-property Guests may still use MagicBands for theme park entry and FastPass+ reservation check-in provided the MagicBand is linked to their Disney account in My Disney Experience. If you need assistance with linking a MagicBand you may contact a Cast Member at (407) 939-4357 or visit any Guest Relations location. I hope Mickey and the gang make a decision in the future to allow MagicBands to have charging privileges for non-Disney Resort hotel Guests.

    Disney Dad Tip: There are so many options for MagicBands once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. You may even customize your own with your name and your favorite Disney personality. Check out the MagicBand on Demand station at The Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. adjacent to Space Mountain.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions to help make your Disney vacation special.

    Andrea, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
