    Do new tickets link to “old” magic bands if the are still marked active on your experience account? Also are Disney gift cards acceptable payment for food & wine?

    Hiya Amanda,

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for your question about planning a vacation at Walt Disney World Resort. MagicBands are a great way to enter the Theme Parks, unlock your Walt Disney World Resort Collection Hotel room door, make purchases, and link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your account. I love that you can get a MagicBand that fits any mood (which means you can end up with a lot of them)!

    The best part about MagicBands (in my opinion) is that you do not have to purchase a new one each time you visit Walt Disney World Resort. As long as your MagicBand is active, you can use it to enter the Theme Parks no matter how old it is! So go ahead and pack your MagicBand in your luggage for your trip next month. Now on to your question about Disney Gift Cards. In my experience, Disney Gift Cards are definitely an acceptable form of payment for EPCOT’s International Food and Wine Festival! We almost exclusively use Disney Gift Cards as our form of payment and haven’t had any issue using them. A good tip is to ask the Cast Member at the kiosk first just to verify, but you should be fine in most cases. One final tip, if you haven’t registered your Disney Gift Card, I recommend you do so before your visit. This will help you be able to get your money back should you misplace your Disney Gift Card.

    I hope you have an incredible vacation, Amanda! Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you prepare.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
