    Could I have step by step on how to use a magic band when it come to using meal credits? IE: quick service meal or snack credit.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Hortencia! 

    My family and I love using the Disney Dining Plan while we're vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort. There are a lot of benefits to using it, but my favorite is how quick and easy it is! There isn't anything complicated about redeeming your Dining Plan entitlements. When you're ordering a meal from a Quick-Service dining location, all you need to do is order and tap your MagicBand on the reader. The Cast Member serving you will ask if you'd like to use your Dining Plan credits, and then they'll print you a receipt that shows how many credits you have left for the rest of your stay. If you're ordering for a group, only one person needs to tap their MagicBand to use credits for your entire family. The process is exactly the same for snacks, so it's time to start planning for all the delicious treats you're going to enjoy. Be sure to download the My Disney Experience app before you leave so you can make dining reservations, browse restaurant menus, and keep track of your Dining Plan credits.

    Have a magical day, Hortencia!
