    We are heading to Disney in 3 weeks. We've been planning this vacation for 2 years. As a result my children have received several Disney gift cards. Is there a way to upload their gift cards to their individual magic bands?

    Hello Wendi and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    You must be over the moon excited with your trip coming up SO soon! I would bet there is a countdown calendar somewhere in your house or on your computer.  Disney Gift Cards are a great way to help budget for both you and your children. However, currently, it is not possible to load these cards onto your MagicBands. In my opinion, the ability to pay with the MagicBand is too awesome to pass up. We simply hang on to the gift cards and use them to pay down our account before our check out day. The front desk should be able to provide you with a print-out of what was charged with each MagicBand. Another way to keep track is to keep the receipts for each child's purchases and have them "pay" you with their gift cards. I advise stopping by the front desk to apply the gift cards the night before check out or sooner to avoid the charges being applied to the credit card you provide at check-in.

    You still have time to ask anymore questions you might have- we love to help!

    See ya REAL soon!
