    Can you load an AMEX gift card on to the Disney wristbands?

    Hi Cindy,

    Disney's MagicBand is one of my favorite things at Disney World! I no longer need to look for my room key as it is on my wrist. 

    While you cannot load the MagicBand with any gift cards, you can still avoid carrying a gift card into the park and pay with the MagicBand if you are a guest at a Walt Disney World Resort. You can use your MagicBand to make a purchase and charge it to your room. Before you reach the resort credit card limit, head to the front desk and pay your bill with your gift card. Each resort has a different limit before your credit card is charged and it is noted at check-in.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
