    You cannot use a MagicBand for purchases at WDW unless you are currently a resort guests with an active 'room charge' account set up. When you add a credit card to your MDE account, the only thing it's used for is to guarantee dining reservations to charge the no-show charge if you do not show up..

    The credit card is not linked to the actual magic band but to the guest's account when they are staying on property. No information is actually on the magic band. They are no different then the card that they used to give you that worked at your room key and tickets, etc, it is just in the shape of a bracelet now.

    Has anyone experienced their magic band not working as planned? Did you bring a backup to pay for items in the event the magic band system was down?

    You could just download your bank's app and get alerts of all charges made.

    Yes. I had to go back to my room and get cash. Luckily it happened at the resort we were staying at. I don't know what happened to the people in shops, but I spoke with someone who said their dinner was just manually notated to be added to the room charge later.

    Luckily the magic band has always worked for me. But I always have other forms of payment just in case.

    I always have a backup in my wallet. I don't go anywhere without my wallet.

    Duct tape is the way to go. If you link your credit card to your magic band with scotch tape your sweat, etc. will cause the link to wear off.
