    Is there away to link my credit card or gift card to the magic band to use in the park if we are not staying at Disney? Also are they reusable?

    Hi Megan, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Guests staying at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels may use their MagicBands to charge purchases to their room account.  At this time, it is not possible for Guests without a Disney Resort Hotel reservation to link a credit card or gift card to their MagicBands.

    MagicBands are definitely reusable by the same person, as long as they are in working order.  I have several from past trips that I reuse on a regular basis, selecting the color or pattern that suits my mood on any particular day.  Battery life is estimated to be about 2-3 years.  I have a few bands that are older than that and so far they still work just fine.  A MagicBand is a convenient way to electronically link to the information in your My Disney Experience account, including your theme park tickets or passes and FastPass+ reservations.  A MagicBand from a previous trip will link to the information currently in your account.  Once a MagicBand has been linked to a particular Guest's profile, it may not be reassigned to another Guest.

    Megan, please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your vacation.  We are always happy to help.  Have a wonderful trip!
