    Will we be able to link our Disney gift cards to our magic bands now, since they trying to encourage Mobile ordering to decrease crowds and lines.

    Howdy Cyndi!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I love using the Mobile Food Order option, and I am so excited to help you with this question!

    I know we are all so excited to get back to our happy place, AKA Walt Disney World!  I am so excited about the months to come.  You will be delighted to know that the Walt Disney World Resort is encouraging the use of Disney Gift Cards, Apple Pay, and Disney Rewards Redemption Cards.  They have not released any information about these cards being able to be applied to your MagicBand but continue to check the Disney Parks Blog for updates on things like these.  You can always make your charges to your MagicBand and pay the balance with your Disney Gift Card through Guest Relations at the front desk if that is easier.  I have done that several times over the years, and it is also a great way to stay on budget during your vacation!

    The Disney Parks Blog is the best place to obtain the most up-to-date information as things progress.  I know the months to come are going to be spectacular.  The Walt Disney World Resort is always ready to make unforgettable memories for all of their guests.  I am looking forward to my upcoming vacation to see the little things Disney does to always “Make Dreams Come True”!

    Since your vacation is in February, many things may look a little different from what we currently know.  Also, you will be coming to the Walt Disney World Resort during an EPIC year!  The Walt Disney World Resort opened in 1971, so 2021 with be the Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary!  We all know that Mickey Mouse loves to party, and I am sure this will be a party like no other!  I am so excited about my 2021 trip also!

    As things change and you have questions, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   Also, continue to check the Disney Parks Blog.  Happy Planning, Cyndi!  We look forward to helping you with any planning questions you make have!

    See Ya Real Soon,
