    Is there a way to add my kiddos gift cards to our magic bands for payment? They received them for Christmas and their Birthdays so we already have them.

    Hello Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    I love staying at a Disney Resort hotel and enjoying all the great benefits available for Guests. One of my favorite features is being able to use my MagicBand to pay for food and merchandise throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    You must link a valid credit or debit card to your account in order to use your MagicBand with charging privileges during your stay, however, you are welcome to stop by Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel to check your folio and use another method of payment to pay for purchases charged to your room, including Disney Gift Cards.

    Disney Gift Cards are a great present and I love using them during our visits. I usually stop by Front Desk the night before check-out and use them to pay for everything and avoid having the card on file charged after midnight. Your boys can use their gift cards to pay specifically for their purchases. Please note, however, that there is a limit you can spend daily before the credit card on file is charged. Talk to Cast Members at Front Desk upon arrival to check what your Disney Resort hotel limit is to avoid surprises.

    Thank you for sending a question our way, Jessica! I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a magical visit!

    See ya real soon!
