    Love ur panel and the new mobile site! Going to Dw in April 2016. Wondering how long it takes from mco to AKL? Also is there a way to load Disney gift cards onto my magic bands? Thank u! Can't wait to hear back!

    Welcome home, Samantha!

    Thank you for sending the Disney Parks Moms Panel your wonderful questions! I am thrilled to hear that you love the Disney Parks Moms Panel and that you are enjoying the new mobile site. It is Guests like you that keep this wonderful website running and I thank you for your feedback.

    I have found that it takes about 45 minutes-1 hour to travel from Orlando International Airport to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge if you are taking Disney’s Magical Express. I average about 30-45 minutes in a rental vehicle, rider-share service or on a day with light traffic.

    Currently, there is no option for adding Disney Gift Cards to your MagicBand. I suggest that if you want to pay your balance with Disney Gift Cards, you visit the Front Desk nightly and pay off your daily balance with your Gift Cards so that your credit/debit card on file does not get charged.

    Mom's Quick Tip: You can manage, purchase and gather information on Disney Gift Cards on the Disney Gift Card website.

    Samantha, I truly thank you for your encouragement and wonderful questions. Please visit us again soon! There are many new and exciting things happening with our site and I truly thank you for letting us know that you are loving the new changes.

    Wishing You an Unforgettable Vacation,
