    Can you link Disney gift cards to magic bands?

    Welcome to planDisney, Cindy!

    MagicBands are one of my favorite ways to add ease and convenience to my Walt Disney World Resort vacations! It's so nice to have access to my theme park tickets and Lightning Lane reservations with just a touch of my MagicBand.

    Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel can use their MagicBands to make purchases throughout the resort. These purchases are applied to their Disney Resort hotel folio, which will be charged to the credit card linked to their account. Unfortunately, there’s no way to directly link a credit card or a Disney Gift Card to a MagicBand.

    So if you aren’t staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then you won’t be able to use your MagicBand to make purchases. However, if you are a Disney Resort hotel Guest, you can always use your MagicBand for your purchases and then use your Disney Gift Card to pay off your hotel account balance. Simply head to the front desk of your hotel and let them know that you would like to use your Disney Gift Card to pay for your account charges and they can apply it to your balance.

    I’ve used Disney Gift Cards several times to pay for portions of my account and it’s a quick and easy process. Since your charges are generally applied to your credit card on the last night of your hotel stay, I recommend that you apply your gift card to your account balance no later than the last full day of your vacation.

    Cindy, have you seen the new MagicBand+? I can’t wait for my next visit to the “Most Magical Place on Earth” so I can use this new MagicBand technology to interact with the theme parks in new ways.
