    Hi! I was wondering, can I add a credit/debit card to my MagicBand even if I’m not staying on site? Thank you!

    Hi, Yashar!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    I'm happy to share that you'll be able to use your credit card for the Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering service through the My Disney Experience app. It's a real game-changer for those who want to maximize their time, and it will also help you keep that credit card safe in a pocket. 

    Disney Gift Cards are also widely accepted, so you can manage your balance and use them daily at the Theme Parks and Disney Resort hotels.

    My husband and I usually do that to keep our budget under control, and they're very convenient for our Disney travels. For small purchases, like the occasional yummy snack, we usually carry small amounts of cash.

    The benefit of connecting a credit card to a MagicBand, though, is reserved for Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels. Isn't that one of the many reasons to start planning your next trip?

    I hope those options help you plan your daily budget management at the Walt Disney World Resort, Yashar! 

    May the magic be with you,
