    How do I use a Disney gift card to pay for my magicband order?

    Hey there Donald! Welcome to planDisney! I hope you’re planning to experience all the special 50th Anniversary magic by visiting during The World’s Most Magical Celebration!

    Disney Gift Cards are a great way to plan out your vacation spending in advance. My wife and I like to ask friends and family members to gift our kids Disney Gift Cards in place of traditional birthday and Christmas presents! This way, they can have some extra funds to grab any souvenirs that catch their eyes during our visits. 

    When you purchase your MagicBand through ShopDisney, you can use up to five Disney Gift Cards to pay for your merchandise. Additionally, you can make MagicBand purchases with a Disney Gift Card at Disney Resort Collection hotel gift shops, Theme Park retail locations, and Disney Springs retail locations. However, you can not pay with a Disney Gift Card when purchasing a MagicBand at the discounted pre-arrival exclusive price in My Disney Experience. For these purchases, you are only able to use a Credit Card or Debit Card to complete your transaction. 

    I hope this helps, Donald! If you have any more questions while planning, come back and ask me!

    Until Next Time,
