    Hello! When charging purchases to your hotel room via your magicband will the balance be charged to the card you have on file the same day as the purchase or can you use Disney gift cards at check out?

    Dear Larissa,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I frequently use Disney gift cards to pay for all of our room charges during our time at the Walt Disney World Resort, so I can let you know that they will typically submit all room charges on the evening before you check out of your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room. Additionally, they will typically set a "limit" on your room charges and if you go over that, they will charge your card earlier. I recommend that when you arrive at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, that you speak to the front desk and ask about the limit that is set on your room so that you can prevent those charges from being charged to your card if you would prefer to pay with your Disney gift card.

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
