    Considering waiving mousekeeping services. How do we use the electronic gift card? Is it added to magic bands or given a barcode? Thanks.

    Howdy Debra!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  Thank you for sharing your questions with us!

    I am sure you are very excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  If you decide to forgo Mousekeeping to obtain the electronic Disney gift card, there are several ways you can use it.  You can pull up your email and allow the Cast Member to scan the bar code for each purchase.  If you desire, you can print the Disney eGift Card and use it as a paper copy, or you can have the balance transferred onto a physical Disney Gift Card.  Personally, I prefer either a physical Disney Gift Card or pulling up my Disney eGift Card on my mobile device.  

    I love collecting Disney Gift Cards throughout the year.  Disney Gift Cards allow my family to stay on budget.  I usually charge my purchases to my MagicBand and then periodically check in with Guest Services to get my balance and use my Disney Gift Cards to apply to that balance.  

    There are so many exciting things to see and do on your vacation in September!  I am looking forward to an “Out of this World” dining experience at Space 220!  Between the elevator ascending to the stars and the amazing views of Outer Space, this dining experience will definitely be a must-do for our family!  If you have not already added Memory Maker to your vacation, then you still have time!  With your unforgettable vacation, “Just around the Riverbend,” I know you will want to make sure all your memories are captured so you can take them home with you!  I love Memory Maker because it allows me to obtain an unlimited amount of photos at a great price, and the best part is, everyone is in the picture!

    To stay up-to-date on everything that will be happening during your vacation, check out the Disney Parks Blog!  Also, if you have any more questions, please come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We love to help with all your planning questions!  Happy planning, Debra!

    See Ya Real Soon,
