    Now in 2021 can Disney Gift Cards be linked to our Magic Bands?

    Welcome to planDisney, Lisa!

    Thank you for visiting us today with a great question! I am happy to see that you will be spending the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    One of my favorite things about staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel is using a MagicBand to charge food and merchandise purchases to my room account during my stay. Guests can also use this pixie-dusted device to enter the theme parks and water parks with valid admission, open the door of their Guest room and link Disney PhotoPass content to their Disney account.

    Although it is not possible to link a Disney Gift Card to a MagicBand, you can use your MagicBand to make purchases and then visit Front Desk at your Disney Resort hotel to pay for the expenses charged to your account using your Disney Gift Card. You will still have to link a valid credit card to your account, but it will only be charged at midnight on the date of check-out, so if you stop by Front Desk before that, ask Cast Members to check your room folio and use your Disney Gift Card to pay your account.

    planDisney tip: Disney Gift Cards are accepted as a payment method while using Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering!

    I hope this information is helpful, Lisa! Come back to visit us if you have additional questions and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
