    Ami from MA Asked

    I am visiting in March and currently a Disney VISA, DVC, and annual pass holder. I'd like to confirm how I got about getting my applicable dining discount when using my Magic Band in the park?

    "Welcome home," Ami. Just as Nala was thrilled to see Simba again after a long absence, that's how we at planDisney feel when a guest returns to us with another question. 

    As a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member who is always looking to save a few dollars (so I can buy an extra DOLE Whip®), I'm happy to chat about how discounts are applied. First, it's important to note that even though you hold an Annual Pass, a Disney Visa and are a Disney Vacation Club Member, those perks are not automatically recognized through your MagicBand. Meaning, you'll need to make sure to carry those physical cards with you, including identification, to ensure your discounts when shopping or dining. Once you're ready to pay, you'll just need to show your card to the Cast Member serving you.

    Ami, there is good news on the horizon, however. Just because you'll need to show your card of choice doesn't mean you can't pay with your MagicBand! If you're hoping to cut down on the plastic in your wallet while in the parks... Hakuna Matata! My recommendation would be to browse through the list of current discounts to decide which card you'll want to have handy. For ease of comparing, here are links to each site's discounts and perks:

    - Disney® Visa® Cardmember Savings
    - Disney Vacation Club Member Benefits
    - Walt Disney World Passholder Discounts

    Ami, I hope this helps as you're gathering your herd and getting ready to return to the Pride Lands. Please come back and see us with any other questions you might have. 

    Best wishes for a vacation as Magical as the sunset on the Savanna,
