    Can I attach gift cards to my daughters magic band for her purchases in gift shops? I want those purchases to be charged against those cards and not my credit card.

    Hi Theresa,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Is your vacation coming up soon? Let me help you with your question so you can discover how The Magic is Endless at Walt Disney World Resort.

    One of the many Benefits of Staying at Disney Resort Hotels, is that Guests can use a MagicBand to charge purchases made throughout their stay. However, all purchases are actually charged to your room folio account. In order to make this possible, you must link a credit card to your Disney Resort Hotel reservation and allow charging privileges. That said, you can use a Disney Gift Card to pay for those charges. Just be sure to stop by the Front Desk to reconcile the account.

    One last tip: remember you can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance. And the My Disney Experience mobile app makes this process a breeze. Happy planning!
