    Can Disney gift cards be linked to magic bands? What about linking gift cards to children's magic bands (11 and 8 years old)? Can a credit card be linked as well? If so, do the gift cards get used before a credit/debit card that's linked?

    Hi Stacey!

    I often use saved up Disney Gift Cards to pay for my expenses during my Walt Disney World vacation.  You will need to put a credit card on your account, but you are still able to pay off your balance with gift cards.  What I do is get a statement from the front desk every night so I can see all of my charges for the day and then pay it off with the gift cards I have.  This is a great way to budget during your trip by seeing your charges day to day as well.  Your credit card gets charged on the morning of check-out or if you reach the minimum charging limit during your trip which varies by resort.

    Have a magical day!
