    Hi Moms, We are planning to stay off-site and looking at possibly buying MagicBands to make it easier to keep up with tickets, fast passes, etc. Just wondering if we can link Disney gift cards to these, or just a credit card? Thanks!

    Hi Anita!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love using MagicBands during our trips to Walt Disney World Resort as it makes our day so much easier. It is so convenient to have access to our theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account right at our wrists so we don't have to keep track of everyone's admission cards in our pockets and bags all day! Unfortunately, you will not be able to link a credit card or Disney gift card to your MagicBands. Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel are able to use their MagicBand to add charges to their hotel room account, which will be added to the credit card on their account, but this option is not available for day Guests who are staying off-site as you will not have a room account to charge to. Regardless, I think you will still love all of the wonderful features MagicBands will provide for you during your vacation!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you prepare for your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
