    Can you apply funds from Disney gift cards to your magic band

    Hi, Donna! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. Your trip is right around the corner - can you feel the pixie dust yet? I hope you plan to head to Epcot during your Walt Disney World Resort visit, as the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival is in full swing! This is my favorite event of the year and there is so much to do, to see, and to taste while there. Be sure to check out the Eat to the Beat concert lineup for your visit dates. Your MagicBand and Disney Gift Cards are sure to get quite a workout at the Global Marketplace food and beverage kiosks. I certainly used mine frequently at the Flavors from Fire kiosk!

    At this time, guests are not able to preload a MagicBand with funds from a Disney Gift Card. However, you can stop by the Front Desk at your Disney Resort Hotel and ask to pay down the balance with your Disney Gift Cards. This is actually what I usually do during each resort stay. It is just so much more convenient to tap that MagicBand than carry around all of my cards! If you do prefer to just use cards and not use the MagicBand to charge purchases back to your guest folio, then you may want to look for the wristlet Disney Gift Cards at Epcot. They usually carry these bracelet-style ones during the festivals, making it super easy to keep up with your handy payment source.

    Okay, Donna, I am really craving that Smoked Corned Beef and Bell's Brewery Porter from Flavors From Fire now! Go score a touchdown with the crew there for me!
