    Can I load Disney gift cards to our magic bands? I have purchased a few of them for our upcoming trip? I was wondering if I could load them vs having to stop at the front desk each day and pay off our balance. Thank you!

    Hi there, Kristen!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Currently, Disney Gift Cards can not be linked to your Magic Band, but hopefully, this extra benefit will be something that can be added soon. 

    During our last Disney vacation, on the days that were extra long and we spent hours in the park, I knew that I would be too tired to stop by the front desk each night. Instead of using my Magic Band that day for purchases, I would just pay for dining and any gifts I bought by using the Gift Card right then. So, I didn't have to worry about going over budget, and I could head straight to my resort room for the night! 

    I hope this helps, and if you have more questions, please visit with us again soon!

    Happy planning!
