    How can I add my Disney gift cards to my magic band

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jessica!

    MagicBands are the niftiest accessories!  They make it so easy to access theme park admission, redeem FastPass+ reservations, link Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, and unlock the door to a Disney Resort Hotel room.

    Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel may also use their MagicBands to charge purchases to their room folio, which are then billed to the credit card on file.  Guests who would like to use gift cards for payment may stop by the Front Desk of their hotel to pay down the balance.  At this time, Guests without reservations at a Disney Resort Hotel may not use their MagicBands for charging privileges.  I often use Disney Gift Cards during my Walt Disney World Resort vacations, and I choose to simply carry my cards with me.  If you have multiple cards, you can simplify by transferring balances from one card to another on the Disney Gift Card website.  When making a food or merchandise purchase, the remaining gift card balance will be shown on your receipt.

    I hope that helps!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions as you plan your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.
