    Hi we are headed to Disney for Christmas. If I add a credit card/gift card to our magic bands does everyone in the party have access to it? We are figuring meal issues but not sure I want everyone to be able to shop with the magic band option.

    Welcome to planDisney, Jennifer! 

    I’m happy to hear that you’ll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! I hope you’re ready for joy and memories to last a lifetime! Christmas at Walt Disney World Resort is my favorite! Enjoy every pixie-dusted moment! 

    Though there is not currently a way to link Disney Gift Cards to your MagicBands, you will be able to have a credit card linked to your MagicBands. If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, the credit card on file will automatically be linked to all of your party member’s MagicBands. It is nice, though, you do have to input the PIN number you assigned to your credit card linked to your room in order to utilize the card on file, so it keeps the little (or big) ones away from purchasing everything their heart desires IF you do not tell them the PIN number! (We’ve done that with little mouseketeers before, and it works pretty well!) 

    My family usually gets a gift card for each little traveler that they can use for shopping at Walt Disney World. It makes them excited to have a little to spend, and it keeps us within our budget! 

    If you have additional questions, Jennifer, we hope to hear from you again soon! 

    Happy holidays!
