You can't link payment information directly to a MagicBand. If you have a resort stay, you can apply the balance of the Gift Cards towards your room account. Anything you purchase with your MagicBand will be charged to your room and the Gift Cards will be used first to reduce the balance owed.

How does that work? Does that mean that you don't have to take the GCs to the hotel and bother the CM to pay down your balance?

That was my thought too but there was also talk that Disney may be setting up spending accounts for those that are not staying on-site to be able to use the MBs for purchases.

It would then make sense to be able to link GCs to those accounts. I wouldn't think that would be limited to only those not staying on-site... just a thought...

I am sure this was answered in here somewhere so excuse the repeat question! If we have paper tickets from UT and magicbands and everything is linked and working (able to schedule FP+), do we still need to get the paper tickets converted to RFID or are we all set with just the band? I'll still bring the paper ticket just in case, but it'll be nice if we can skip the converting at guest relations step now! Thanks!

Great question because I have been wondering this exact same thing. I hope someone knows the answer.

Are UT tickets considered discounted tickets?

Should I just quit thinking about this??
All of the tickets I purchased (with the exception of 2 AP) were brought from UT ( 3 adult 6Day PH and 1 child-6day) and I was able to linked them with no problems. We are not leaving until Nov but right now we are all in the process of picking FP+ and customizing our MB

We bought DVC PAP's last Dec and opted to pick them up at will call when we arrive next month. I couldn't get the order confirmation # to link to MDE so I talked to Disney IT tonight & was told that because I don't have the actual tickets in hand, I can't link them. Are others finding this to be true?

I should add that the tickets we bought through UT for family members who will be traveling with us linked perfectly.

Were those that linked okay that you purchased from UT paper or RFID?

If they are linked in MDE it should be right on your band. Best explanation of Magic Bands I got was from a Cast Member at All Stars Music who said The bands hold everything you link through MDE. Music was not testing but PORiverside was which was going to be my second resort. I had tried the bands for kicks at the Magical Express counter and they worked. Cast Members there were a bit shocked because they knew ASMu wasn't testing yet. Then at check in at ASMu the girl helping me couldn't say if they would work for room key, dining plan and charging but asked another CM who said if its linked in MDE to your account and the bands themselves are linked and active on the MDE all should work. It did!

Only one problem on 4th day when all charging privileges were dropped. But they dropped from my Key to the World card too so it wasn't the band. In fact back at the Front Desk I had everyone confused when I said my charging wasn't working and they all (like 5 total at different times) said it was the band and as they weren't testing they couldn't do anything. Finally one understood I had no charging with either so said she could redo the card but that would not help the band. But it did as I was able to use it right after.

All that said I know there are still linking problems and I would still take the paper tickets to have on hand if there are any problems. And have fun!

Thanks so much! We will definitely bring the paper tickets but it's great to hear stories of things going smoothly! I really wasn't looking forward to that guest relations stop!

I never thought of it until my DD asked. How do we remember what rides we choose, on what days and times, when using the FP+? Do I have to carry a print out of everything? How does this work?


TIA

Cause i'm from Canada, i'm thinking I will have to pick up our magicbands when we check in. Has anyone else picked theirs up at check in? Did it come in the Incredibles box if you check in, or are they in something else?

Hello, I'm new to this thread and have a question about MB. I will be staying at boardwalk in December but was unable to link my tickets to my account. I got them threw orbitz which only allows pick up at the park. I know I can't take advantage of Fp+ because of my mistake of buying them like that but will I still be able to get MB for my key to the hotel. Thanks!

I was able to link our PAPs using the will call confirmation number. I just bought them last week, though. Our trip starts Oct 5.

If I'm reading previous posts correctly, we will be able to enter the parks using our MBs without having to pick up our physical APs? I think we would still need them though for discounts and such, wouldn't we?
