    Could I link my magic band to a visa gift card as my credit card?

    Hi Leslie! Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I'm so excited to hEAR from you about your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! In just a couple of days, you and your family will be walking right down the middle of Main Street U.S.A. making magical memories that will last a lifetime. Have you started packing?! Make sure to throw in those bathing suits as the weather is looking hot and sunny for your arrival!

    I bet you're also very excited about trying out a MagicBand+.  MagicBand+ includes all of the features you came to know and love with an original MagicBand, like the ability to unlock your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room door, enter the Disney Parks, and easily make purchases to be charged back to your Resort room.  Now, MagicBand+ also includes entertaining features like lights and vibrations that enhance nighttime spectaculars, the ability to interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection, and the fun of following vibrations to become a bounty hunter in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.  

    When you set up your payment method through your MagicBand or MagicBand+ you will need to first connect a regular Credit or Debit Card to your account. However, as you charge to your MagicBand+ throughout your stay you can stop by the Front Desk of your Disney Resort daily to pay off these charges with the gift card you mention, a Disney Gift Card, or even cash. This way, you'll still be able to use that pre-paid gift card you already have to pay for your souvenir stops at the Emporium, yummy DOLE Whips, and other Park purchases.

    Have a magical vacation!
