    We are planning our first family Disney trip in 13 years! We are very excited but have a question about charging things to our Magic Bands. If we buy Disney gift cards and charge things on our bands, can we pay with the gift cards at the end of the trip?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Susan!

    I am so happy to hear that you are returning to the most magical place on earth after 13 years! There is no better way to celebrate than staying at a Disney Resort hotel and enjoying amazing benefits such as using your MagicBand to pay for dining and merchandise throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I am happy to share with you that you are welcome to use your Disney Gift Cards to pay for the expenses charged to your room with your MagicBand, as this is what I usually do when staying at Disney Resort hotel. The only thing you have to remember is to stop by Front Desk the day before check-out to pay for your balance using your Disney Gift Cards. If you forget to do so the credit card that you have on file will be charged at midnight. Please note that after you have spent around $1,000.00 (please confirm the exact amount upon checking in) your credit card may automatically be charged, so keep track of your expenses and stop by Front Desk to pay using your gift cards whenever you get close to that amount.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Susan! Please stop by real soon with more questions, we are delighted to help!

    Best magical wishes,
