    I have a Disney Gift Card that I have been saving for our spending at Disney World. Can I use the card with my magic band? I tried to upload it on the MDE app but I don't see it available.

    Hello Brittney!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I hope you are having fun making all the plans for your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.   Your trip will be here before you can say bibbidi bobbidi boo!  I hope you have a lovely vacation.    It's my pleasure to help answer your inquiry today.

    Disney Gift Cards are so convenient and easy to use.  I will often buy one each time I grocery shop and use them as a sort of 'Disney savings plan' to use on my vacations.    By the time my family visits we have enough saved to pay for our meals and souvenirs.  It works out great.   I am glad you are planning on using some during your trip.   Disney Gift Cards can not be linked to your Disney Resort hotel account.  In order to charge to your Disney Resort hotel room account you will need to link a credit card.  Once a credit card is linked you can make purchases using your MagicBand throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.   Each night you can stop by the front desk and pay down your balance using your Disney Gift Card.   Please keep in mind that your credit card will be charged once you reach a certain spending limit or a few days before your departure so ask about the limit and charging time when you check in at your Resort. 

    I hope this has helped.   Please let us know how else we can assist you.  It's so fun to lend a helping hand to fellow Guests.
