    Is there a way to have a gift card or credit card on each member of your party’s magic bands? Going with friends and we all want to be able to charge our own food and shopping. If so, how do we do it? Thanks for your help!

    Hi Wendy,

    Welcome to planDisney! I hope you're counting down the days until all of the magic and fun begin because your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just around the riverbend! SO exciting! With the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival in full swing and springtime fun happening all around the Resort, you're going to have a BLAST!

    I'm happy to let you know that yes, it is possible for each Mouseketeer in your room to have your own credit card and PIN number linked to your individual MagicBands. You'll all simply want to stop by the front desk at your Disney Resort hotel and ask the Cast Member to help you get that set up. If you'd like to pay using Disney Gift Cards via your MagicBands, you have a few options. First, since you'll have a credit card on file with your room, you can simply use your MagicBand then stop by the front desk before you check out to apply your Disney Gift Cards to your balance. Do note, though, that there will be holds placed on your credit card for the amount you're spending plus $100 along the way. Your other option is to place your Disney Gift Cards on your account when you first check in. If you choose to do that, just make sure you err on the low side of what you think you'll spend because refunds will not be given for any unused Disney Gift Card dollars once they've been applied to your account. Of course, it's also possible to do a combination of the two and put some of your Disney Gift Card dollars on your account at the beginning of your trip and swing by every few days to add more! Don't forget that you check your current balance in your My Disney Experience account, too, to help keep an eye on your spending.

    Thanks so much for coming to see us at planDisney, Wendy, and please know you're welcome anytime. I hope you and your friends have a truly magical vacation together!
