    Is there a way to upload a credit card and link it to my magic band myself or does it have to be done by the staff upon registering at a Disney hotel?

    Hey there, Sharon!  Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Your vacation begins in just a few short days!  I'll be happy to help you get all those last-minute details into place.

    Guests with a reservation at a Disney Resort Hotel may use their MagicBands to charge purchases to their room account, which are then billed to the credit card on file.  You can set this up at the front desk of your Disney Resort Hotel upon arrival, or you can set it up yourself using the Online Check-In feature on the My Disney Experience website or mobile app.  When logged in to your account in My Disney Experience, you'll see your Resort Hotel reservation listed in "My Plans" or on the home screen of the My Disney Experience mobile app.  Select "Start Check-In", or if you have already completed the online check-in process, you may select "Modify Your Check-In" or "Update Check-In" (The wording varies slightly between the website and the mobile app.)  You should see a field for "Hotel Account Charges" where you can enter or update your credit card information.  You will also need to set the "Hotel Account PIN" that you will use when charging purchases to your room account.  The Online Check-In process is super simple and you should be able to have your card set up for charging privileges in no time at all.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  Enjoy your stay!
