    I buy gift cards all year for our Disney trip and I would like to be able to put these on our magic bands for our trip in August.Since they do not allow you to condense the gift cards to one this would be very helpful.Thank you for your help.

    Hi Helena!

    I love saving up Disney gift cards for my Walt Disney World vacations.  I just used a handful last weekend when we stayed at the Coronado Springs Resort.  

    You will need to put a credit card down for incidentals, but you can pay your room charge balance off with gift cards at any time.  I like to get a charging statement the night before check out and use my gift cards to pay it all off.  If you incur additional charges before you check out, you can apply your gift cards in the morning.  You can keep charging to your MagicBand after you check out, but those charges will go on your credit card that you initially gave at check in.  

    Have a magical day!
