    Hi love the panel so helpful; planning a trip for June 2015. I want to know if you can add a Disney gift card to the magicbands upon arriving at the resort for charging privileges. I know you can add a credit card, just wanted to know bout the gift cards

    Hi Catherine,

    I am so happy you have found the Disney Parks Moms Panel helpful for your vacation planning!  Thank you very much for asking your question here.  We really do love helping our friends plan their MAGICAL memories.

    The current policy for MagicBands is that a credit card can only be linked for charging purposes.  However there is good news for you!  Gift cards may be used to pay on your Resort Hotel account after you have made charges with your MagicBand.  Simply stop by the concierge desk during your stay prior to check out and ask them to apply your gift cards to your account.  Personally I like to stop by once or twice during my stay to check on my balance and make a payment.

    Have fun planning your next summer vacation Catherine!  If you have any further questions, please be sure to come back and visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
