    We will be staying at Shades of Green for our upcoming trip. If we purchase Magic Bands, can we link a credit card in order to make purchases with the bands in the park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dena! 

    First, I want to take this opportunity to thank the service man/women (or if it's you) in your life for all they (you) do for our country. Having been a military child myself, I can attest to the sacrifices our military families make. 

    Shades of Green is a beautiful, deluxe-level resort in the heart of the magic! Located near Magic Kingdom Park and several other Walt Disney World® Resort hotels, your options abound for dining and entertainment even outside of the theme parks. 

    As you know, guests of this patriotic resort must buy MagicBands separately if they want to take advantage of this all-inclusive device. While you will stay be able to link your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and your PhotoPass Photos, a credit card cannot be linked to your MagicBand for purchases. This function is currently only available to guests of a Walt Disney World® owned and operated Resort hotel as the Resorts are the ones that actually process the charges. However, I know they are hoping to expand this functionality in the future, keep your "mouse ears" open, you never know when things may change. You can also select the highlighted link above for additional information. 

    I hope this is helpful in your planning, Dena! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any additional questions you may have! 

    Saluting you,
