    Can I use Disney giftcards to buy one of the specially offered MagicBands from the website? Thank you!

    Hey, there! Hi, there, Jason! I'm glad to see you back at planDisney where you are as welcome as can be. Autumn is such a magical time to be at Walt Disney World Resort. You must be getting so excited as your trip gets closer. Have you seen the new countdowns to your resort stay on the My Disney Experience mobile app? I love the resort-specific designs. 

    For me, MagicBand+ is like Minnie Ears: I think I have all I need and then see new designs. The line between "want" and "need" can be blurry. 

    I am also a fan of using Disney Gift Cards. They are accepted almost everywhere in Walt Disney World. Almost everywhere, however, does not include purchasing the pre-arrival selection of MagicBands+. You can purchase MagicBands+ at the Disney Store ahead of time with a Disney Gift Card. You can use your Disney Gift Card to purchase them in person at retail shops in the theme parks and resorts.

    Personally, if the design you want is available with the pre-arrival offer, I would use a credit card to buy them now and save the Disney Gift Card for snacks or merchandise during your trip. After all, you will be visiting during the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. The money you save could make space on your gift card for a sweet or savory treat at the festival. I'm watching the website for more information, but I am already hooked with the news of Emile’s Fromage Montage. Yum!

    If you have any other questions as you plan your trip, please come back to planDisney. You've got a friend in us.

    Reach for the Sky!
