    If I'm not stating at a Disney Resort/Hotel, will I be able to link my credit card to the Magic Bands I bought online specifically to avoid carrying a purse or wallet? From what I read, it's only good for my ticket.

    Hi Diane!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this question about MagicBands. Currently, only Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can use their MagicBands to make purchases. As an off-site Guest, you would not be able to link a credit card to your MagicBand.

    However, as an off-site Guest, there are still many benefits for using MagicBands throughout your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. You will be able to use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks and water parks (with a valid admission), check-in at FastPass+ attractions and connect Disney PhotoPass photos to your account. You will love the touch-and-go convenience!

    I hope this helps with your planning, Diane! Please stop back and let me know if I can answer any other questions about your upcoming vacation.

    Wishing you many magical memories!
