    Can Disney gift cards be used for online check-in?

    Howdy Jackie!

    Thank you for visiting with the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Currently, Disney gift cards cannot be added to your online check-in. Only a debit or credit card may be linked to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Once you arrive on property and begin to make purchases with your MagicBand, stop by the front desk of your resort and ask for a balance printout from your daily spending. Once you verify all of your transactions from the day, you can then use a Disney gift card to pay on your balance. At the end of each day, I would suggest stopping by the front desk of your resort, as all charges may be applied to the debit or credit card that you have linked to your account. This is what we do when we stay on property. If there is a balance at the end of your visit, it will be charged to the card that you have linked. 

    If you want to avoid having any charges applied to the debit or credit card linked to your account, just use your Disney gift card instead of your MagicBand

    Please stop by again if you have more Disney planning questions, Jackie. We're here to help!

    Happy planning,
