    My wife and I are annual pass holders. I have a magic band which I would like to link to my credit card. On a recent visit with my son and his family I could charge items with my band. Recent visit, it did not work. What do I need to do to link them

    Hi Albert!

    I'm happy to hear you've enjoyed the benefits of using Walt Disney World Resort's MagicBands on one of your recent vacations. MagicBands make our Disney vacations so much simpler, by acting as our theme park tickets, FastPass+, resort room key and by being able to charge purchases to our room. Guests can also use MagicBands to link PhotoPass photos to their My Disney Experience account. It's so nice to not have to search in my purse or backpack to find all of the cards I'd need to perform these tasks - my MagicBand is right there on my wrist - so convenient and easy. My favorite function of my MagicBand is being able to open my door when I arrive back to the room after a long day in the parks!

    Charging privileges are available to guests with Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations only. MagicBands can be used to charge food and merchandise purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room, which is only available during a Disney resort hotel stay (MagicBands cannot be used to charge purchases directly to your credit card).

    When you check in at your Disney resort hotel, simply ask the Cast Member to test your MagicBand to make sure it's set up to charge purchases to your room. You'll need to set up a four-digit PIN number that you'll type in at payment locations when you use your Magic Band. At check in, you'll also need to present a valid credit card to take care of any charges made to your resort hotel room. If you'd like to pay off these charges using any other form of payment, such as cash or Disney Gift Cards, simply stop by the Guest Services Desk on the last evening of your vacation, before you check out the next morning.

    I hope this helps answer your question. Have a magical day! - Diane W.
