    Is there a way you can load a gift card to the Disney app to pay for food? I don't want to stand in line, but I don't want my food charged to credit card.

    Hi Wanda and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Autumn visit to the Walt Disney Word Resort is just a few days away! How exciting!

    Disney Gift cards can go toward Disney Resort hotel stays, merchandise and food! When it comes to making purchases, you may do so using your MagicBand and the only way to do so is if you’re staying at a Disney Resort hotel. If you are, there’s an easy way to load your Disney Gift Cards to your account.

    Here’s a little background on how it works. Any charges made with your MagicBand go back to your Disney Resort hotel bill. After your stay, those charges go directly to the credit card on file. You can call a Resort Reservation Cast Member at (407) 939-1936 before your visit and tell them you’d like to add a Disney Gift Card to your Disney Resort hotel bill. At first, the gift card will act as a credit on your account and that credit will be used toward any purchases made with your MagicBand or any other charges made to your room.

    After you’ve exhausted your gift card amount, any additional charges will be put on the credit card you have on file.

    Wanda, you can place orders using your My Disney Experience app on your phone when you select "Mobile Ordering." You can use Disney Dining Plan credits to pay for purchases, or pay for purchases using your MagicBand, like I described above, you can use a Disney Gift card or a credit card. 

    I hope this information is useful to you as you continue to put those finishing touches on your upcoming trip.
    Have a magical visit!
