    Hi Moms! Are Disney gift cards able to be linked to magic bands? I know they were hoping to add this feature, wondering if it’s in effect yet. Thanks!

    Hi Barbara and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing us your question about using Disney Gift Cards on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    Disney Gift Cards can be used to pay for Disney Resort hotel stays, theme park tickets, merchandise and dining anywhere within the Walt Disney World resort. 

    You can use the magical currency on your Disney Gift Card to apply additional funds to your Disney Resort hotel account, which would cover purchases that you make with your MagicBand during your stay. (Every purchase made with your band goes directly to your resort bill.) Just make sure your MagicBand is linked to your My Disney Experience account!

    If you already have a Disney Resort hotel reservation, the best way to get the process started is by calling (407) 939-5277 to speak with a Resort Reservation Specialist. Let them know you’d like to use your Disney Gift Cards as a credit on your account. Now any charges made with your MagicBand will go directly to your Disney Resort hotel bill and will be covered by those magical dollars.

    You will still be asked to leave a credit card on file, just in case you go over the amount that you’ve specified. It’s a really convenient process. I’ve been able to use more than one gift card balance at a time on many occasions, to add funds to my Disney Resort hotel bill before my stay. 

    Barbara, I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue planning your next visit. Please feel free to come back to see us with any additional questions you might have. Helping you with the details of your next stay is our pleasure!
