    We purchased a Disney gift card and would like to charge our food to it. We are staying in a Disney property and normally just charge the dining to our Disney band. How do we have the charge go against the gift card since our credit card is loaded?

    Hi Kris! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is SO close! It sounds like you are a returning Guest, so I’m sure you already know how much fun awaits you. It always amazes me just how many new things there are to discover every time we visit!

    I’m thrilled to hear you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. The ability to use MagicBands to charge purchases to your hotel account is the BEST! I’m all about convenience, especially on vacation, so I’m a big fan of MagicBands.

    While you can’t link Disney Gift Cards directly to your account, you can pay down your balance with them at the Front Desk. You will need to have a credit card linked to your account, but just head to the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel and ask to pay off your purchases with your gift card. Then, the charges won’t go to your credit card because you’ll have them paid off already!

    I hope you have an AH-MAZ-ING vacation, Kris! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
