    Is it possible to link a Disney Gift Card to specific Magic Bands for souvenir purchases? I'm concerned that my kids may misplace the gift cards, but I'd like for them to have their own spending money, without me having to approve every purchase.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kim. I love the idea of giving kids their own spending power, within reason of course!

    MagicBands do not carry any financial information so you won't be able to link a Disney Gift Card to make purchases. Spending with a MagicBand is linked to your Disney Resort hotel room account where you are able to make purchases as long as you have a credit card on file. 

    I recommend you activate spending on each MagicBand and set a daily spending limit for your children. Then, when you return to your Disney Resort hotel each day, you may pay this balance with a gift card. It's an extra step but I think it's worthwhile due to the extra security it provides.

    I hope this helps as you plan for your magical vacation! Please feel free to let us know if we can answer any other questions. Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World Resort!
