    If you are paying out of pocket for your meals (not using DDP, have 10 and 6yo daughters), can you charge all meals to magic band? If so, can you pay the balance daily or would it all be paid in one lump sum at checkout?

    Hi Natalie! You will love the convenience of using your MagicBand to charge your meals to your room at your Resort hotel! The Cast Members will ask you if you are using a Disney Dining Plan or if your purchase is a room charge. You will let them know it's a room charge, enter your PIN and the check will be billed to your room. You can use your MagicBand in the majority of locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort for dining and merchandise.

    Because you will have a credit card on file associated with your room, if you would like to pay day by day, you are more than welcome to do so. You can also pay the full balance at checkout. You can either stop by the front desk or call from your Resort hotel room to have your current balance charged. As you enjoy your vacation, if your folio reaches its limit (typically $1,500-$2,000), your credit card will be charged at that time and then charged again at checkout for any remaining expenditures.

    On one vacation, we had a large dollar amount on a Disney Gift Card so we visited the front desk more frequently and requested to have the gift card charged rather than the credit card we had on file. You can do the same with cash at the front desk if that is your preferred method of payment.

    Enjoy every moment of your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort and let us know if you have any further questions as your plan your magical vacation!
