    We are Annual Pass holders who live in Daytona Beach and usually make a day trip to the Food and Wine Festival in October. Now that we have wrist bands, will we be able to put money on them instead of wearing and using the little swipe card?

    Welcome Tom,

    It is exciting news to see Disney's Annual Passholders, along with day time Guests, now experiencing the MagicBand but there are some differences between Guests staying at a Walt Disney Resort and those who are just visiting for the day and not staying at a Walt Disney Resort.

    One of those difference is charging privileges. At the moment you can not add money to your MagicBand and use it like a Disney gift card, nor can you link a credit/debit card to it and make purchases. Right now your MagicBand will allow you to make FastPass+ reservations and link Disney PhotoPass photos to your Disney account. 

    So, go ahead and purchase one of Epcot's International Food and Wine Festival wrist gift cards, load it up and enjoy your day eating and drinking around World Showcase. If I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask.
