    Hi! I have Disney gift cards that I want to link to my Disney acct. Can I do that through the MyDisneyExperience App or do I have to load them on the DisneyGiftcard site. Thanks in advance for your Disney knowledge!! 

    Hey there, hi there, Holly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Currently, Disney gift cards cannot be added to your My Disney Experience account. Only a debit or credit card can be linked to this account. If you have multiple Disney gift cards, I would suggest transferring the balance of each gift card to one gift card to make it easier to keep up with the balance, as well as, just one card. You can do this by creating an account on the Disney gift card website. This website account also allows you to keep track of your purchases. 

    If you will be staying at one of the Walt Disney World resorts and will be using your MagicBand to make purchases while on your Disney vacation, be sure to stop by the front desk of your resort each evening to verify the balance of your purchases each day. At that point, you can give your Disney gift card to the Cast Member at the front desk and make a payment on your balance with your gift card before it hits your debit or credit card on file. 

    If stopping by the front desk each night is not what you'd like to do, just use your Disney gift cards to make each purchase instead of your MagicBand.

    Holly, have the most time on your upcoming Disney vacation! If you have more questions about FastPass+, Memory Maker, or special events, please stop by and visit with us again soon!

    Happy planning,
