    My daughter has received Disney gift cards for her birthday to use when we were at the parks. Is there any way to link them to her MagicBand or do we just have to make sure we have the cards on us when we are there?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Emily! You’re just about a month away from your magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks for sending us your question!

    Disney Gift Cards always make for a great gift. They can be used toward merchandise, meals and even Disney Resort hotel stays. They’re the best kind of magical currency!

    When you’re a guest at a Disney Resort hotel, you can absolutely link those funds to your daughter’s MagicBand. Here’s what you should do. When you arrive for check in, let the Cast Member know that you would like to add the gift card funds to only your daughter’s band. With just a few quick clicks on their end of things, the gift cards will be accessible for your daughter to use throughout your magical stay!

    While you’re enjoying the reception area of your Disney Resort hotel, make sure to ask for a complimentary celebration button. Mickey and his friends love to help you celebrate all of your special occasions!

    Emily, happy birthday to your princess! Please feel free to drop by again to see us if you have any more planning questions. Helping you with the details of your next visit is our pleasure!
