Mom and daughter on Expedition Everest

    Hello Moms! Booked our vaca in Oct and am excited at the prospect of not having to carry anything to the parks now that we can use magic bands! My question: when I check into the hotel can I give them cash instead of a CC use as an allowance on the bands?

    Hi Rebecca,

    You're welcome to leave cash at your hotel to secure MagicBand charges in the parks and resorts. You can also leave a debit card, Disney Gift Cards, or other forms of payment as well. Just speak with the front desk during check-in and they'll help you arrange everything.

    A word of unsolicited advice -- As tempting as it may be to head off to the parks with nothing but your Magic Band, I strongly caution against this. It's tempting to walk out the door and leave your wallet in your room, but even at Walt Disney World, emergencies can happen. I say this as someone who twice over the years has had to leave the parks and head directly to a medical facility. You really never want to be without your photo ID, medical insurance card, and at least a little bit of cash for a taxi. That being said, the MagicBands really are incredibly convenient.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
