    Hello. I’m visiting Disney World this summer - July 2019, and would like an update to this question. Are you able at this time add gift cards to your Magic Band, or credit cards if you’re staying off property?

    HI Barbara!

    You have picked a great time to visit Walt Disney World Resort because there are so many exciting things headed to the theme parks in 2019! You will be able to enjoy brand new attractions and entertainment in the theme parks, as well as some fantastic new dining experiences. I know my boys will love Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy and I can't wait to try Jaleo by José Andrés when it opens in Disney Springs!

    MagicBands are such a great addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because they add so much convenience to your trip. It's so nice to be able to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel can also use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout Walt Disney World Resort which will be charged back to their Disney Resort hotel account. Unfortunately, there is no way for Guests to link a credit card or a Disney Gift Card to their MagicBands. So if you are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you won't be able to make purchases using your MagicBands.

    Keep in mind that you can begin making your dining reservations 180 days in advance of your vacation, so be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible to get the best selection of dining times for your trip! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
