    Can I purchase my magic bands with a gift card?

    Hi Tammy! Welcome to planDisney.

    Did you hear the exciting announcement this week about the all-new MagicBand+? Beginning on July 27, 2022, you can purchase the all-new interactive Disney arm candy to use at Walt Disney World Resort. I cannot wait to wave one in front of the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. Hearing my man, Donald Duck, greet me at Magic Kingdom Park will ignite my inner kid. You can read the announcement from Disney Parks Blog here.

    Disney Gift Cards are essential to my Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning and budgeting. Many locations and online shopping accept Disney Gift Cards as payment, including purchasing MagicBands either in person or online at ShopDisney.com. Here you can explore all those options available to you. My favorite Disney Gift Cards are the exclusive wristlets available at EPCOT for all the festivals. These help me stay on budget and make kiosk purchases easy. I have one caveat with Disney Gift Cards. You cannot store them in your My Disney Experience account as a form of payment. So, keep them handy, and remember you can combine your cards for easy use. If using your Disney Gift Card as a form of payment, always keep your cards in case of any refunds as you will need the original form of payment to get credit.

    Surely by now I have you totally stoked to purchase your new MagicBand+! Head to the theme parks and stay late to enjoy one of the new nighttime spectaculars. Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park and Harmonious at EPCOT will bring to life your MagicBand+ and make you part of the show.

    Keeping it Magical,
