    How do I use my Disney Gift card to purchase our Magic Band order thru the disneyworld.disney.go, directed when choosing Magic Band's on My Disney Experience. it doesn't give me a gift card option only debit/credit card or Disney Rewards options.

    Welcome to planDisney Agustin. Thank you for stopping by with this question.

    During the year I usually buy gift cards and compile them to budget our spending inside the parks or use them for awesome sales on the shopDisney website for our vacation gear. This past November I was using the discount provided to purchase our MagicBands from the website as I believe you are. I had gift cards to spend as well, and could not find a location for this option. I called and confirmed for myself that it was not an option, and it sure wasn’t. The cast member I spoke with stated that there is no option on the website for using a Disney gift card. If you do have your heart set on using these gift cards for the purchase of your MagicBands there still is an option. The shopDisney website has a lot of options available for purchase. And I confirmed before answering your question that you can use a gift card and you most certainly can. I would like to add that I almost purchased a new MagicBand in the process for myself. Phew, that was a close one.

    Another great option is waiting until your visit in October. You can easily load a new MagicBand in an instant using the My Disney Experience App. I enjoy checking out my resort as we check in at the front desk. I also enjoy shopping around the parks. There is always some new exclusive design available somewhere. During your stay make sure you check out the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, there is always a new design to be had for this famous festival. This year's festival will be in full swing so be sure to check out all the pairings at the Global Marketplaces, and check out who is performing during your stay for the Eat to the Beat Concert Series presented by Florida Blue Medicare. The performers range from local talents or a renowned artist you already know and love. 

    Stop back by if you need any other planning tips. Have a magical time. 

    See ya real soon,
