    How can I link a Disney gift card to my Magic Band? I will be staying at a Disney Resort. I would prefer not to have to worry about the possibility of losing a physical card.

    Howdy Michelle!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thank you for sharing your question with us!  I love chatting about gift cards, and I use them quite often, so I am excited to help you with your question.

    I prefer to put everything on my MagicBand!  It makes everything so much easier and adds an added element of relaxation to my vacation.  I love to collect Disney Gift Cards throughout the months leading up to my vacation to help my budget.  To be able to use your Disney Gift Cards in connection with your MagicBand, all you have to do is go to the concierge at your resort a couple of days before check-out and have your Disney Gift Cards applied to your balance.  This amount will be deducted from your charges before they are applied to your credit card.  It is a straightforward process and will only take a couple of minutes.  So Hakuna Matata. No Worries!

    October is a beautiful month to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  There are so many new things to do and see!  We recently were able to enjoy the modified Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and it was amazing!  There were tons of food and yummy drinks options!  The Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival is a definite must-do experience!  If you have a sweet tooth as I do, make sure to try the liquid nitro chocolate cake pops!  They are fantastic!

    Take some time out before your vacation to familiarize yourself with all the quick-service locations available and how Mobile Food Ordering works.  You will be encouraged to use the Mobile Food Ordering option on your My Disney Experience.  I love Mobile Food Ordering because it allows you to order, customize your order, pay your bill, and relax until your order is ready.

    If you have any more questions while you are planning, come back to planDisney!  We look forward to helping you again, Michelle!

    See Ya Real Soon,
