    We are going to WDW in February and are staying at a non-Disney hotel by Disney Springs, Can you link a credit card to the magic bands if not staying at the resorts?

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I've stayed at that hotel several times in the past and it is incredibly convenient to Disney Springs. You can simply walk across the street and be right in the middle of the action. There's even an elevated walkway over the street for safety.

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to link your credit card to your MagicBand. That benefit is available only to guests staying at official Walt Disney World resorts.

    Have a great visit to Walt Disney World, Sarah, and please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you. Enjoy!
